Yemeni parliament passes law banning Washington drone attacks

Yemen's parliament on Sunday called for a stop to drone attacks in a symbolic vote that reflected growing public anxiety about Washington's use of the unmanned aircraft to combat al Qaeda in the impoverished country. Motions passed by the Yemeni parliament are not binding and can be struck down by the president, and are seen as no more than recommendations to the government.

"The Yemeni public is angered by the drone strikes," said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he's not authorized to talk to reporters. "The people's representatives reflected on the tone of the streets."

"Democracy is when both privates and generals are put on trial for breaching the law" - Russian MP

**Manning’s sentence shows that American democracy goes wrong - Russian MP -

A 35-year prison sentence for WikiLeaks informer Bradley Banning shows that in the United States it’s “privates” and not their superiors that stand trial for breaching the law, which is a glaring sign that something is going wrong in the American democracy, Alexei Pushkov, head of the foreign affairs committee of Russia’s lower house of parliament, said on Wednesday.

“A private has stood trial for breaching the US laws, but none of the generals, who lied to the American nation and who claimed that the system for tapping phone calls and intercepting Internet mail had not been used against Americans, appeared before court,” he said.
