Former Air Force pilot Brandon Bryan is one of the first ever United States drone operators to speak out against what has been happening overseas for a number of years now, which is the murder of countless innocent lives.
Bryan served as a sensor operator for what’s known as the “Predator program” from 2007 to 20011. He was responsible for manning the camera on the unmanned aerial vehicles that carried out attacks overseas before leaving active duty in the Air Force, and, as Democracy Now reports, was actually given a certificate that credited his squadron for more than 1,500 kills.
The US clearly encourages and rewards this type of activity. Think about that while you consider what is still happening around the world, including in Syria.
Below is Bryant’s recounting of his first-ever lethal drone strike and the impact it continues to have on him to this day:
I didn’t really understand what it meant to kill at first. It was horrible. The first time was horrible, the second time was horrible, the third time was numbing, the fourth time was numbing, but of course the first time sticks with you the longest.
The Ones Pulling The Triggers & Giving The Orders Need To Stop
Kudos to Bryan for doing his part to shed more light on the atrocities being committed overseas. It really hits home a specific message, and a specific solution. That solution is for the human beings giving these orders and the the human beings following these orders to stop listening. If we want this mess to stop, a shift in thinking needs to take place. We are being used as tools. But just imagine what would happen if every human being on the planet refused to participate in war. What would our world look like then? While you could make the argument that intelligent robotic aircraft would take over, that still begs the question, who is making this aircraft? At the end of the day, there is a human being behind these killings. We are the cause, and at the same time we are the solution.
This is why we say change needs to come from within, and as more soldiers wake up to the truth about these wars, I have to believe that more of them will put down their weapons.
Shooting For No Reason
Brandon Bryan is not the only solider to speak out about this issue. Ethan McCord, a US soldier who served in Iraq, has revealed some disturbing truths about the life of a soldier in the Wikileaks video “Collateral Damage.”
In the video above, Bryan describes how the civilians being killed are seemingly indiscriminately labelled as dangerous, even though clearly they are not.
“So we’re looking at this thing, these people, and uh, it was like, almost instantaneous that someone was like, ‘confirmed weapons … you’re cleared hot.’ “
Ethan McCord expresses the same thing in the video below:
“If you feel threatened by anybody you’re able to engage that person. Many soldiers felt threatened just by the fact that you were looking at them, so they fired their weapons on anybody who was looking at them because ‘I felt threatened.’ We were told that if we were to fire our weapons at people, and we were to be investigated, ‘officers would take care of you.’ “
“This happens on a daily basis. I’ve watched … [the destruction of] vans full of children who were in the way when an IUD went off. The destruction of the Iraqi people happens on a daily basis.”
Brainwashing Young Soldiers
When a person signs up to supposedly ‘serve their country,’ they are most likely doing so with the best of intentions. They believe they are making a positive impact on the world, defending their country from radical terrorists. Many of these soldiers are completely unaware of truth behind the global war on terrorism and the so-called enemy they are going after.
“The truth is, there is no Islamic army or terrorist group called Al-Qaeda, and any informed intelligence officer knows this. But, there is a propaganda campaign to make the public believe in the presence of an intensified entity representing the ‘devil’ only in order to drive TV watchers to accept a unified international leadership for a war against terrorism. The country behind this propaganda is the United States.” — Former British Foreign Secretary, Robin Cook
This is precisely why a number of professors, politicians, and experts from around the world recently gathered to warn us about the global agenda being enacted by the Western military alliance.
The global war on terrorism is a US undertaking, which is fake, it’s based on fake premises. It tells us that somehow America and the Western world are going after a fictitious enemy, the Islamic state, when in fact the Islamic state is fully supported and financed by the Western military alliance and America’s allies in the Persian Gulf. . . . They say Muslims are terrorists, but it just so happens that terrorists are Made in America. They’re not the product of Muslim society, and that should be abundantly clear to everyone on this floor. . . . The global war on terrorism is a fabrication, a big lie and a crime against humanity.” (source) (source)
If you believe that these terrorists are being funded and armed by the United States and other governments (along with the hand that controls them all, which is comprised of the major banks), then you need to ask yourself why. What is the logical explanation for such illogical actions? It seems clear that they wish to incite panic and fear to distract us from the reality that they are fabricating these events — all in order to justify the infiltration of other countries for their own, selfish motives. And this is something that more soldiers, and everyday citizens, need to realize.
Are soldiers really fighting for freedom, or are they fighting for elitist agendas under the guise of patriotism and a global terrorist threat? Patriotism is propaganda, and when combined with the fictitious, manufactured, terrorist threat, it makes one believe that there is something to defend, something to fight for.
In his paper “Consent Without Consent: Reflections on the Theory and Practice of Democracy,” Noam Chomsky quotes and adds to some important revelations by Edward Bernays:
“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society.” To carry out this essential task, “the intelligent minorities must make use of propaganda continuously and systematically,” because they alone “understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses” and can “pull the wires which control the public mind.” Therefore, our “society has consented to permit free competition to be organized by leadership and propaganda,” another case of “consent without consent.” Propaganda provides the leadership with a mechanism “to mold the mind of the masses” so that “they will throw their newly gained strength in the desired direction.” The leadership can “regiment the public mind every bit as much as an army regiments the bodies of its soldiers.” This process of “engineering consent” is the very “essence of the democratic process.”
There is also the pressure these soldiers face when they are in the military. They have no choice but to take orders from other brainwashed (I do not mean for this term to have a negative connotation here, we are all brainwashed to some extent) soldiers who outrank them.
Just as Ethan McCord stated in the Wikileaks video above:
“We were told by our battalion commander to kill every m***** f****** on the street. Many soldiers would not do that. We decided we were going to shoot into the rooftops of buildings because if you didn’t fire, the NCOs in your platoon would make your life hell.”

“If all armies refused to kill, to destroy life on Earth, then the Cabal would become impotent overnight. So ask yourself, who has the power to stop the takeover and destruction of life on Earth?”
To me, that’s the most powerful part of your comment, Edward Morgan.. I do know anger and the urge to hit a table or stamp in fury on the floor, as an outlet of frustration. But I can’t understand killing of another human being and other living beings in name of…. peace? To restore….. peace? It’s such a crooked concept, war, it’s such madness.
In England every year it’s Remembrence Day for all soldiers who fell in war and people wear poppy emblems on their coats or hats, place wreath with plastic poppies on the village monument with the names of those who fell and served their country. I’m sure there are pure hearts remembering them and sending genuine prayers.
The young men who refused to fight, in the UK, were ridiculed by their girlfriends and the community. They were offered white feathers and lost their reputation, even their job. My father was in the military as a vickar for the soldiers, since 1965, although I’ve not lived in a war situation.
I’ve seen young men in the 60’s with long hair refusing to go in military service, this was the hippy trippy time in Holland. One of my brothers claimed to be mentally disturbed and smoked pot before having his healthcheck for military service. He was dismissed and many with him, but some were still ridiculed and judged. Now it’s not an obligation anymore to serve for one’s country and attend military service at the age of 18, in Holland. It’s a free choice now.
I think it’s a genetically induced program in a man’s consciousness to want to run to war in order to protect the wife and kids and sadly being killed for it. There’s no atom of service in fighting, unless it’s a fight between two men, bare handed. Sorting things out, setting the records straight, so to speak. Enjoying a beer afterwards, no hard feelings. That’s a whole different affair.
I agree with this that each of us has the choice to lay down the gun that is meant to kill and begin to obey the law of the heart. To say that one is proud for having killed as a defense of one’s country, to restore peace, is a brainwashing by a non-human energy or entity, as I perceive it.
There’s no excuse for killing, not in life and not in war and I believe that the deep pain of living with a conscience that knows one has destroyed life, once or more often, that this pain is transformed into an anger and acted out, repeating the same act that is heavy on one’s conscience already. It’s a heartbreaking attempt to numb that pain, it seems. But it’s the two sides of one hand. One side holds the other side in existence, isn’t it? And that’s why it rings so true to me, these few lines in that comment of Edward Morgan. When one force stops, the other force ceases to exist. It’s a deadly dual.
The choice to break that “chain reaction” is hard to find for someone who killed so often that the soul is forever maimed, it seems. Or numbed. And when the choice is almost made, to break that chain, the outside world of tough brave men reminds that person that it’s a good thing and a courageous act to run to war and serve, so that wife and kids can live and peace will be restored. Does it ever? It’s one of the most gruesome fairy tales of our time.
In that logic of how war comes to pass, it’s a truth, that when humanity decides to stop all war, that the Cabal, this destructive force and source with the spark of war, will cease to exist. Without one shot. Humanity is powerful in the light of that truth and we’re awakening to that truth now, gradually. I’m sure of it.
War is an ugly business, isn’t it? And, it’s easy to criticize the men and women who chose to serve their country…but note they did not sign to serve the Cabal as you imply. Yes, politicians (cabal) are to blame for manufactured conflicts which placed our men and women in harms way. Also, you causally forget to mention the amount of risk and danger these men/women face in the middle east. They are walking targets. Have you heard of PTSD? Many are suffering from it because of their soul wrenching struggle to “act” while their soul is torn between right and wrong, not to mention the bodily harm inflicted on them and seeing their friends die…complete dehumanization of their souls. Empathy anyone?
I’m a Korean immigrant…my family fled towards south during the war but not before my father’s father was captured by the North never to be seen again. Nevertheless, my family and country thrived once the Americans came to liberate my homeland. My family even made it to the US and I now serve in the US Air Force and I wear my uniform proudly. I choke whenever a Korean Vet comes over to thank me for my service because I AM the one who’s indebted to their service. I get a huge lump in my throat trying to thank them for laying their lives to save ours. That’s what most service men and women believe when they sign-up…saving innocent lives against terror. Agreeing to be brainwashed is far from the truth.
There’s a lot that needs to be fixed in the military…heck, our whole entire government needs fixing. I’m not disputing that…in fact, I’m full of criticism on all aspects of our government. But…just being honest…I did take it personally on the words you chose to describe the entire military profession as being dishonorable. Essentially, you demonized those you disagree with. “Think before you act” you say…very few would ever experience situations where one would make split second decisions like our military men and women and get it right 100%. We are imperfect humans after all…and sadly, many return with mental health issues from guilt and trauma…it’s ugly and costly.
So what is the answer to peace? Maybe we should demand that terrorist meet us half way…that they compromise their beliefs and accept diversity. I would love to see them start by recognizing human rights and religious rights.
Dear Marie, we are not implying ALL soldier, only those who serve the Cabal, here is what we said: “Look at those soldiers who serve the Cabal with pity. Show them your pity as it may awaken them to the error of their ways. Shame them into seeing themselves as the killers of humanity, sees them as hired killers who are prepared to kill for money.”
My Father Served in the Korean War and I can tell you dozens of horrific stories of war crimes committed by the US forces, just like Donald Trump so courageously just said: “Do you think our country is so Innocent?” We need to remember that we ALWAYS HAVE OUR FREE WILL before choose to pull the trigger. My father had PSTD for the rest of his life after the war, and I can vouch that PTSD is a direct result of those choices.
“The army is not an honorable profession.”
“Look at the men who strut around in uniform with their medals and stripes, so proud of themselves.”
“Shame them…” and “pity them…” How? Point fingers, spit on them, ridicule them and exonerate them of their errors by the self-proclaimed righteous? Sounds quite condescending and discouraging.
What would today look like if there were no soldiers to fight the Nazis and the Japanese? What would today look like? Would a pacifist approach to evil/cabal protected the innocent? Would we be closer to the Event?
Soooo…I’m learning that there’s a galactic war going on…that the cabal are being terminated (killed? arrested? sent to the central sun?). Nevertheless, there’s an epic battle going on. Should those Light warriors put down their swords…choose free will not to pull the trigger?
Ethos of a true warrior is to defend the innocent from terror. Sometimes we have to engage in a mess that the cabal manufactured even when orders come from cabal affiliate. But we will fight despite the manipulation because there are immediate lives to save and protect. Might seem like a lose-lose situation. I say no…it’s the burden we signed up for even when the people we swore to protect demonize, humiliate and ridicule us.
Lastly, I want to thank your father for his sacrifice. There are no words to quantify what he lost in his lifetime to fight in a war for people so far removed from his home. I weep for what he gave up for me and my homeland…which also includes the effect it had on his family who endured what he carried with him his whole life. I will forever honor your father, you and your family.
Thanks Marie, as I said in my previous reply to you, not all soldier but “those soldiers who serve the Cabal”
Everyone who thinks sending our loved ones to war is protecting our freedom needs to wake up from being clueless, and this includes my own loved ones with tunnel vision. Read at least one book, “War is a Racket” by one of our most decorated marines, Major General Smedley Butler. I get livid when MSM shows all these sappy stories about our soldiers and their “sacrifice” (?). I can only join this cheerleaders if I were clueless about the truth which is all there for the taking, but generations have been so dumbed down that even trying to explain this to the clueless is almost impossible to do.
Remember what happened in Vietnam…
The soldiers SHOT THE NCOS and the Lts …!!
Think before you act. Ask yourself, will my action hurt my fellow man. Ask of your work, does it harm others? Do you work for the Cabal in the services that support them? If all armies refused to kill, to destroy life on Earth, then the Cabal would become impotent overnight. So ask yourself, who has the power to stop the takeover and destruction of life on Earth? Look at the men who strut around in uniform with their medals and stripes, so proud of themselves. Look at those soldiers who serve the Cabal with pity. Show them your pity as it may awaken them to the error of their ways. Shame them into seeing themselves as the killers of humanity, sees them as hired killers who are prepared to kill for money. The Cabal praises them and honors them, and holds them in high esteem. For without them, the Cabal would have no power at all. The army is not an honorable profession. How I know this, my own father was veteran of two mayor wars as he spend his entire life in the Army.
Come together as human beings under siege. Forget the labels imposed on you by the Cabal. You are all in this dilemma together. The 99% as opposed to the 1% of evil masters. They want the Earth for themselves. This is why by means of wars they divide you into religious and racial groups, to prevent you from having the full strength of the 99% that you should have. Take back your power and your strength, and shine your light on all that is dark and evil. Expose it for what it is. Let truth and justice guide you to fulfill your mission on Earth.
