A look at some seldom-acknowledged victims of the US's current wars. Hundreds of children killed by drone strikes ordered by President Obama. (We name 25 of the children.) Thousands of U.S. servicemembers, male and female, raped each year by other U.S. servicemembers. One soldier suicide per day and one veteran suicide per hour. Why is this happening? Features articles by DAVE LINDORFF, ALYSSA ROHRICHT, and the NY Times; commentary in song by DAVID ROVICS and ROY ZIMMERMAN; and remarks by me.
Chuck U. Rosina recorded David Rovics live in performance in Boston on January 27, 2013. http://www.radio4all.net/index.php/program/65944 . The articles by Dave Lindorff and by Alyssa Rohricht are from CounterPunch online. www.counterpunch.org .

Music added: David Rovics, "The Comets of Kandahar"; Roy Zimmerman, from "Thanks for the Support"; and a dash of Orff's "Carmina Burana" (London S.O.).
