Originally posted at AcronymTV http://youtu.be/Yc7rQkWchX8 15 innocent people in Yemen were killed Thursday by a Drone attack.

According to a Reuters report:
"An air strike missed its target and hit a wedding car convoy, ten people were killed immediately and another five who were injured died after being admitted to the hospital," one security official said.

Five more people were injured, the officials said.

The United States has stepped up drone strikes as part of a campaign against Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), regarded by Washington as the most active wing of the militant network.

Yemen, AQAP's main stronghold, is among a handful of countries where the United States acknowledges using drones, although it does not comment on the practice. Human Rights Watch said in a detailed report in August that U.S. missile strikes, including armed drone attacks, have killed dozens of civilians in Yemen."
The 15 homicide victims will be called collateral damage, and yet we are not at war with Yemen. It is a country, that, like Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Somalia pose no threat to us and certainly have not declared war on us and yet, who contain within their borders members of an organization- Al-Qaeda- whose ranks will surely swell with each innocent victims whose bodies are pulverized at the click of a button from an Air Force pilot half a world away.
