Every Year Since Obama Won the Peace Prize, US Has Broken its Record of Killing Afghan Civilians

obama-afghan-deaths

According to numbers released by the United Nations this week, the US military is murdering innocent civilians at ever-increasing rates and is killing more innocent people each year. In fact, recent reports have indicated that the US military breaks its record for civilian casualties every single year in Afghanistan, for the past seven years.

The UN report revealed that 3,545 innocent civilians were killed and another 7,457 were injured in the past year of the US military’s occupation of Afghanistan. These numbers showed a 4% increase from the number of deaths the year before.

Since the United Nations began keeping track of civilian casualties in Afghanistan in 2009, they have documented roughly 59,000 deaths and injuries, and it is expected that there were many other cases that were not on record.

Ironically, the same year the UN began keeping track of civilian deaths, the Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to President Barack Obama for his “extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between people.”

Danielle Bell, director of the U.N. human rights program in Afghanistan, pointed out that fighters on neither side seem to have any concern for innocent civilians.

“The report references commitments made by all parties to the conflict to protect civilians, however, the figures documented in 2015 reflect a disconnect between commitments made and the harsh reality on the ground,” Bell said.

“The expectation of continued fighting in the coming months combined with the current levels of civilian casualties, demonstrate the critical need for immediate steps to be taken by all parties to the conflict to prevent harm to civilians,” she added.

The situation has become even more complex now that the US is funding and arming various rebel groups who are constantly changing in structure and motive. Sadly, the innocent civilians who are just attempting to live out their everyday lives are the ones who are caught up in the crossfire.

Throughout the Obama presidency, the White House has continually promised to end the wars and has even pretended to do so on numerous occasions.

In 2014, it was announced that the war in Afghanistan was over and that US troops would be coming home. However, while the troop numbers may have diminished slightly, the occupation continued, and death and destruction in the area has continued to escalate on behalf of the US military and their proxy armies.

Years prior in 2011, Obama also said that the war in Iraq was “over,” but in that instance as well, the troops remained, proxy armies were expanded, and the occupation continued.

War continues to roll across the middle east to the point where there are now millions fleeing the region for safer areas every single day. Despite this massive loss and disruption of life, war, and foreign policy continues to be an afterthought for American media and political candidates.

  • Mainstream media won’t report on it so we have to keep each other informed! Please ‘Like’ (y) + Comment (even 2 words) + Share!!

    • I would like to know just how Obama was able to fire those missles? Yes he could give the order to do so, but that is a job for someone trained in the procedure. I would not like to be anywhere near if an error occured.

    AS HAS BEEN OBSERVED, OBAMA IS A PIECE NOT A “PEACE”.

  • I’m American hispanic and I’m tired of how all of these coward racist liberals like Obama, Clinton, and their supporters are trying to turn this great country into a 3rd world one and destroy our great military. Unfortunately, one of the biggest problems we have right now is the media and entertainment that are always trying to tell us how to think. They have created enough imbeciles that will re-elect a failure like Obama. Even more, I’m supposed to bow down to anti-American Obama, love liberal policies no matter how destructive they are, love bigger enslaving government, and be in favor of illegal immigration because of the color of my skin… disgusting. That’s why I and others created “Chepo Team”, the first true pro-America, libertarian comic strip. Please support our cause by liking our facebook page at:www.facebook.com/chepoteam . Thank you

    • Obama is a tool of Wall Street. Our problem in not “Liberals” it’s corporate fascists. A government by and for corporations at the expense of everyone. We live under the economic 4ht Reich regardless of who the president is.

    • I think it was the GOP that pushed for sequestration that forces cuts to the military.

  • Should be piece prize. As in piece of an arm, piece of brain pan etc.

  • Hes just Following orders himself

  • Sometimes you find yourself in the middle of nowhere, and sometimes in the middle of nowhere, you find yourself.

  • He’s only doing what he’s told. He honestly looks like he’s worn down and tired of this shit. If he has no remorse, then shit…

    • If he shows any remorse or guilt they will do what they did to jfk

    • Possibly. Maybe he just doesn’t want to die, keep him in bondage with fear, so he just does what he’s told. That’s just my opinion though.

    • Presidents always have kids, at least since the Federal Reserve Act, don’t they? 😉

    • Hes the puppet but he enjoys it

  • nothing personal, just business…

  • Yes. He looks worn down and tired of taking instructions. He has to do what they say or else he is assassinated. Wouldn’t want to be in his shoes.

  • This whole Nobel things is just to suply them with some pocket money! Not a respectfull Prize anymore!

  • Mr. Obama’s record is much better than Mr. Bush’s.

  • Greetings from Norway……

  • This page has been disappointing me lately. How about the free thought project propose a solution to their problems. I feel obama has done a very good job. And the facts say he has. So if you arnt following the facts then what is it your following? Government is needed. Are you blind to the world or just stupid.

  • hitler preferred the V1 and obamma has his drones

  • Take it back from him

  • he’s just reassuring the nobel peace people that he really did deserve the prize

  • Vladimir Putin deserves the Peace award for not Nuking the Creators of ISIS. Nevermind because God’s about to do it for him.

    • God’s really hot for nukes. The best thing since giant floods.

  • war is big business. theres not one government official that’ll get in the way of corporate war orofit.

  • That is the Nobel Commission’s fault! Why give an award to a president who is at war???? I thought those people would be smarter than that

  • & saunders will be the same . This is a no party system . They are both the same , wake up

  • Obama should never have been awarded the NPP!

  • Stephen Meier

    what isn’t clear is how many of these deaths were from US fired weapons?

  • I love how they hand that damn thing out like it means something. They gave it to him based on his pretty speeches about what he was “going to do”… vs. what he’s actually done.

  • We are all ashamed of our leaders and nobel price …dealers….
    – Seriously… – If he was alive, they would probably give it to Hitler.

    ^^

  • Makes me ashamed to be Norwegian. I still to this day do not understand why he got the Nobel Peace Price.

  • Nobel prizes are a sham

  • The moment Henry Kissinger won the Nobel Peace Prize it became irrelevant. What a fucking joke.

  • This is what happens when you give a Nobel Peace prize for a promise….

  • Even a bird brain could see that award was simply PR for his presidency.

  • Good Job !!!

  • unfortunately yes. Succumbed to dumb fear. Seems to be easier to be and stay pacifistic when you’re not at the top?

  • The industrial war machine is way bigger than any one person!

  • It was the sad moment when Obama was awarded Noble Peace Prize as he is the biggest violator of world,

  • Now thats why he was tearful the other month

  • Under Obamas watch,drone attacks increase four folds compare to George Bush eight years in White House,only 40 drone attacks any where in the world.First month after Obama became the President 60 drone attacks in Afganistan and Yemen.Now giving

  • Cont.now giving Nobel Peace Prize to Obama who has not contributed to world Peace,but increase war and insurgencies almost all over the except West E

  • Except Western Europe,they will be engulf in War too.

  • Obama should get Nobel War Prize.

  • Blah

  • Is there such a thing as peaceful killing

  • Dare we say it? War criminal too?

  • Rock and a hard place

  • Johnson is a Fraud! He’s been hanging out with the Crony Capitalist NO LABELS page!

  • Some of them are not so innocent.

    • There was 8 reports of his death from 1992 to 2007 alone.

  • Wow

  • That’s rascist, you don’t like him cause he’s the first black president

    • OMFG. SHUT YOUR FUCKING MOUTH OR GIVE ME AN ADDRESS AND I’LL SHUT IT FOR YOU.

      RACIST. PFFFTTTTT.

    • HE IS NOT LIKED BECAUSE HE FUCKED IT UP! BECAUSE HE LOVES MUSLIMS MORE THEN HIS OWN PEOPLE…NOT BECAUSE HIS BLACK…BECAUSE TRUTH BE KNOWN HE IS HALF WHITE…NOT BLACK…

  • Sometimes I wonder if Trump is actually working for Clinton and not against.. like a mole..

  • And maybe start giving a fuck when police kill them here.

    • uhhhhm wtf? he does when they are black

    • innocent or not

    • No, he doesn’t. All he does is give a speech, reassure people that not all cops are bad, call the people who take it to the streets because the system doesn’t work for them thugs, and insist that we trust and follow the rules of the system . . . that doesn’t work for us.

    • He’s in a position to do something like at least try to pass some type of legislation that would hold the people we pay taxes to protect and serve us more accountable for their actions, instead of just protect themselves, and won’t.

  • Sara Tucker-Graham Are they Really Relatives ?

  • I wish everyone can just leave everyone alone

  • maybe he should worry about innocent young people in the US

  • If you think he’s Bad , you’d better hope you never see what a President Cruz or Trump does !!!!!!!!

  • Or kill them all.

  • What about all the young people in the U. S. He needs to worry about them first. Too many of them are starving and homeless.

  • Yeah.. he worries there slowing down on the production of opium.

  • Hmmm. Puppet Obama is being called out….let’s see who will respond…

  • Assad is beloved by Syrians.. And he was rdy to give Obama huge fair deal on oil.. But nooo.. He armes criminals and thugs and jihadist and AL nusra front.. He arms the enemy..

    • Doug White very well said

    • Wayne Dixon is that what fox news telling u? I can’t even start of pointing in how mislead u have been by the media.. It rly makes me angry cause I know u are a good guy, or u wouldn’t get mad over these crimes..

    • Wayne Dixon first of all.. Im not Muslim.. Second of all.. I still don’t Blaim Muslims for raping my country.. We have seen many isis body’s with satanic tatos such as the devil him self.. Third of all. Assad has never and will never attack his own people or civilians. that’s the biggest misconception of them all… And the refuges are not Syrians as well.. It’s 5 procent Syrians of all the refuges.. We are fighting paid mercenarys and pretty much modern pirates.. America have Syria and Russia to thank.. If we didn’t stop them here.. They would shortly be knocking on your doors.. Ohh I got so much to say.. But I can’t Wright a book here, >°< and my English typing isn't the best,

  • Lol yes cause he did it all by him self lol…..dumb asses

It was designed and signed into policy by President Clinton 1998, written a follows: It should be the policy of the United States Of America to support efforts to remove the regime headed by Saddam Hussein from power in Iraq and to promote the emergence of a democratic government to replace that regime. Quote.

    • So, is it a coincidence Hillary Clinton became a Senator and voted for Iraq war? It was a coup. Libya was a coup. Secretary Of State? Billions of weapons were sold to Saudi-and who is the biggest donation to her “Clinton Foundation” non profit? Yep, Saudi.
