the effects of the war and the bombs are etched on people's faces everywhere yet there is no end in sight and drones are seen as the way forward not only by the u.s. at least eighty different countries right now on the formal military side have drones are using them within their military it is a technology that has gone from being science fiction to abnormal to the new normal of both war but also all the rest of civilian life the iraq war three point zero is a great illustration of the proliferation of drones and that every single actor and the fight from the u.s. military to the iraqi military to the iraqi militias that are really are rainy and

4:30 am
and there i wanted to have a very. good afternoon after if you. were. going to. but when i saw insurgents now spreading into afghanistan from syria and iraq the fighting is expected to escalate it's very likely the number of trauma operations will actually increase. for the afghan people who have suffered almost forty years of conflict the silent threat from above is likely to remain for a long time to come. hello
