What can you say abvout the use of drones in war

Imagine going to work.  You sit down at what could pass for a gamers' console.  You use it to control a drone thousands of miles away and blow up enemy combatants.  You may even be awarded experience points.  You then go home to watch a Friends episode or maybe play Call Of Duty with your friends for e few hours or watch the news to see if any enemy combatants got blowed up.  Hell, you may even go on CD and if someone best you in an argument you can always tromp them with, "Don't make me fly my drone over there and blow you up!"

Well, in COD it isn't as fun as close up action.

But in real life, I'd much rather use a drone since I'm safe AND kicking ass.

Works for me, I just hope once everyone else has their own drones, we have something better by then.

At that stage China in alliance with Russia will be the new global superpower, and the US (and the rest of the west) will most likely be licking their bootheels, unless of course WW3 breaks out before then. Why do you think the US are building all those missile "defense shields" in eastern europe, turkey etc., adn doing likewise in South Korea, Japan etc.

The US is attempting to contain Russia and China, and doing it under the guise of the bullshit excuse of the danger posed by Iran and North Korea but anyone with a brain can see whats really going on.

I hope you realise those enemy combatants mainly consist of dirt poor Afghan, Yemeni, and Pakistani civilian's i.e.

"The former chief counter-insurgency strategist for the US State Department has estimated that drone attacks kill 50 non-targeted persons for each intended target."

“We have opened up a new realm of warfare, a new realm of breaking, breaching international and domestic law,” says Lawrence B. Wilkerson, former chief of staff to United States Secretary of State Colin Powell in 2002-2005."

3000 people were killed during the 2004-2007, the cia claimed that 80% of these eaths were islamic militants, while even the most groups not associated with the US government will admit that they kill about 10 civlians for every 1 militant, either way the uS is illegally killing lots people in another country. Something like 500 have already been killed in pakistan alone so far this year

If someone is at risk of killing civilians of their own country, or serving men of mine, I do not care if they are dirt poor or if they were raised in multi-million dollar mansions. Their personal finances are irrelevant.

Considering the use of the unmanned assassination devices known as drones to be humorous is callous to say the least. Perhaps we should be frightened to speak up in opposition to their use?

Eventually all war fighting will be done by unmanned machines. Scary, huh?

Eventually all war fighting will be done by unmanned machines."

Correction: "eventually all war fighting will be done by wealthy developed countries using unmanned drones against impoverished underdeveloped nations, and their populations"

Because developed nations never fight each other? Nor undeveloped nations fight each other?

Warfare was much more personal, was very intense and has been the same way for hundreds of years. But, then again...drones allow fat kids who played video games through high school to join the Air Force and keep playing video games.
