US government terrorizes millions of people: Analyst
Dec 21, 2013 | Press TV

The US government is a “terrorist organization that terrorizes millions of people” around the world through the use of “drones to assassinate people by air,” a US policy analyst says.

US President Barack Obama is “personally responsible” for the murder of 15 people who were assassinated by a US drone that attacked a convoy heading to wedding party in southern Yemen on Thursday, said Dr. Mark Mason.

“The US government is knowingly targeting civilians with the intent to intimidate and so we have a US foreign policy that’s knowingly creating international terrorism because it creates angry people,” Masan told Press TV on Saturday.

“The US is violating international law, violating state sovereignty, violating basic human rights,” he added.

The United States has launched numerous drone attacks in Yemen, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Somalia, killing thousands of people over the past few years.

On October 22, Human Rights Watch said US killer drone strikes had led to the death of civilians over the past years in a blatant violation of international law.

Washington claims that the drone strikes target militants but witness reports and figures provided by local officials indicate that civilians are the main victims of the attacks.
