– The Whole World Opposes Drone Warfare … Except for the U.S. and Israel (Washington’s Blog, July 15, 2014):
… And One Poor African Country
A new poll from Pew shows that majorities in every country polled oppose drones … except for Israel, the U.S. and Kenya:
Perhaps because drones have been successfully used to stop poaching of elephants and rhinos in their national parks:
Kenya is to deploy drones in all of its 52 national parks and reserves in a bid to monitor and stop the poaching of elephants and rhinos.
The move by the government follows a successful pilot project in major protected wildlife area, that saw drones reduce poaching by up to 96%.
Americans are woefully ignorant about this issue … They still don’t realize that drone bombings create more terrorists than they kill.
And as the Washington Post notes, Americans are stunningly apathetic:
We’re not kidding. Americans really, really don’t care about foreign policy right now — especially when they don’t have to worry about losing American lives abroad.
