US Drones ‘causing mental trauma’ in Pakistan

Al Jazeera’s December 2011 video “US Drones ‘causing mental trauma’ in Pakistan, argues that “escalating drone strikes targeting armed groups injure many ordinary people” in Pakistan. Al Jazeera supports this claim by including footage from inside a mental hospital with victims of PTSD, quotes from those victims, and statistics of the civilian causalities since 2004. The purpose of this video is to raise awareness of the mental consequences of drone strikes in Pakistan villages in order to elicit sympathy for these victims to end drone strikes in Pakistan. There is a sympathetic relationship established with the Al Jazeera audience who – being mostly from the Middle-east, can identify with the ravages of this conflict and would be touched by the sad footage.
