STOP it BEFORE it STARTS...Drone War Command Center, Horsham, Montgomery County, PA
Drone strikes ‘piloted’ from the continental U.S. against targets in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Yemen, and Somalia have killed thousands of civilians, many of them children. President Obama speaks of ending the decade-long “war on terror.” In fact, the war continues, as do the near-daily drone strikes.
And now, just outside of Philadelphia, the U.S. Air Force and the PA Air National Guard are planning to have up and running by October 1 a drone war command center at the PA Air Guard’s Horsham Station (formerly the Willow Grove Naval Air Station). From Horsham, computer piloted MQ-9 Reaper drones — remote-controlled UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) — would launch through satellites in space deadly Hellfire missiles against human beings thousands of miles away.
Remote-controlled killing—delivering death and planting the seeds of hate and terror—will return to haunt us in unimaginable ways. That’s what the drone war command center planned for the Horsham Air Guard station would do! Unless we stop it!
The campaign to stop the planned drone war command center, Stop It BEFORE It Starts, was initiated by the Brandywine Peace Community and the American Friends Service Committee, with participating endorsement of a growing list of groups and activists: Bryn Mawr Peace Coalition, BuxMont Coalition for Peace Action, Catholic Peace Fellowship, Coalition for Peace Action, Death Walk Against Drones, LEPOCO (Lehigh-Pocono Committee of Concern), Main Line Peace Action, Vietnam Veterans Against the War, Granny Peace Brigade—Philadelphia, Green Party of Philadelphia, Greens of Montgomery and Bucks County, Philly Against War; Peace Center of Delaware County, Philadelphia Catholic Worker, Shalom House/Circle of Hope, Veterans for Peace, Vietnam Veterans Against the War, Women's International League for Peace & Freedom (WILPF), Phila
