Fascinating first hand account of someone with experiencing in the field of combat, who felt he had given up his humanity and conscience at the expense of "doing the job" which is essentially required if you're part of the military.

Excellent video Dandelion. We have to realize that we are all the same human beings, and stop killing each other. I have the highest respect for Brandon Bryant to speak up and tell us the truth about the US military.

Noted. Many thanks for posting, Dandelion.
Yes, we are creating more terrorists with the drone bombings of innocent civilians. They are called "collateral damage." And, it makes me sick. How I wish every single news channel would play this video during their nightly newscasts. End the drones!

I am tired and sick of war. War is hell.

Totally, totally, absolutely agree with you Monika.

War wastes money, human beings, every resource going.
There's nothing positive about war in any context.

How is it that nobody paid attentions to those soldiers trauma when playing a real live-kill videogame kalled drone warfare.

Good point Arild, but you know those who stand to make the money from the drone programs, those who are thinking it's the way to go being misled to think it's better than no boots on the ground, they really don't care. I have said, they are heroes as long as they are needed. When they are used up they come home and they are forgotten, left to fend for themselves, lack of timely medical, lack of affordable housing, and only displayed at useful times to keep the war machine going.

Brandon Bryant is a liar and a fraud. He lies to the public. Go to YouTube and search on "Brandon Bryant - Thy Foul Throat" for proof.

Richard R I watched the video which I might say is from a source that may not be valid. What evidence is there that the dates that the author of the video placed on the video are valid? So many trolls, you have to be careful. He was a drone operator and you can't take that away from him..........

I have to channel Geo. S. Patton on this one. " We go to war to kill the other guy, not to let him kill us " - That said - we are still barbarians no mater high tech our toys are. I Hate War - War kills

I too watched the video, while he did change his words, from ISIS to radical group to right wing, which does in fact cause suspicions or downgrades his credibility.....he needs to stay on mark. It doesn't take away the fact of his not being the only drone operator that has come out to say they suffer from PTSD. Which, as he said he is "suffering" and on medication, could be a reason he uses different terms. However, he stays with the jest of what he is saying. I'm willing to give him the benefit of doubt.

I have also posted other articles on about drones, we even have officials who do not agree with the drone warfare, we have former military who have spoken out to say that drones make us more enemies than it is helping. While I appreciate you getting us to search further and check into things deeper, he did say that in his doing this, he even now has those he worked alongside angry at him, perhaps you are one of them and are trying to discredit him.

When I first heard about drones being used in warfare, it was hard to believe that we would do such a thing. It is so underhanded and evil. Then when I heard that there were just young guys doing this from rooms in the United States, I wondered what effect it would have on them. I knew it would be bad. When this guy and a group of other whistleblowers came forward to reveal their trauma, it was obvious that nobody gave a damn about what had happened to them.

I posted an article this afternoon about what we have learned from GCHQ files that were provided by Edward Snowden, showing Israel's use of drones:

Where war is concerned, power-possessors will change laws and bend every rule in the book.

Remember income tax was created many centuries ago to PAY for war.

. . . and this is the same Edward Snowden referred to as a traitor by one of our CARE2 clan. . . without this valuable information, we would be no wiser and under the usual mushroom of ignorance.
