Early this morning a US warship belonging to the Vth Fleet opened fire on an unarmed fishing boat and killed a fiherman. This incident is seen as yet another example of the cynical disdain USA under President Barack Obama has for Asian and African lives. The boat was on international waters and the US Navy did not possess any authority to open fire and kill the men on board. Though there is a well established international protocol about the search and seizure on the high seas, the uS navy chose to ignore all protocols and killed an unarmed fisherman.
The US Admisistration is only saying that the killing was a mistake. It is unable to expalin to the world how a fishing boat carrying a crew of 3 men can be misunderstood as a pirate ship. A few month back Italian marines opened fire on a group of fishermen who were in Indian territorial waters as demonstrated by the gps DATA, AND KILLED 2 FISHEMEN. The marines involved are facing trial for murder in an Indian court. The stringent action was takenonly because if the Italians were allowed to escape, the Government would have collapsed.
The US Secretary of State, Hilary Clinton has made some prefunctory noises but she has not been able to explain the incident. It appears that the US Navy, like the Army is becoming increasingly prone to indiscriminate violence.
