Drones : Killing For Sport? — Whenever I hear yet another news report of a military drone taking out some ALLEGED THREAT to the United States my blood begins to boil in both SHAME and INDIGNATION. I am all but sure there are personnel in some military control room THOUSANDS OF MILES AWAY from the attack SLAPPING ONE ANOTHER ON THE BACK as though they have all actually done something heroic to defend their county — 150 CHILDREN SLAUGHTERED by US!

We should be horrified!

Drones : Killing For Sport?

Each time that I hear of a new drone strike by America in some distant foreign land, by some video game player wielding a computer joystick in Nevada, I get an uncomfortable feeling in the pit of my soul that my country has committed a cowardly act of murder, simply because it’s virtually risk-free and so easy to do so.

…according to the aforementioned report that I have cited, there are credible reports of more than 150 children having their lives snuffed out to date, via American military drones. …

Whenever it is that I hear yet another news report of a military drone taking out some alleged threat to the United States – my blood begins to boil in both shame and indignation. This, simply because I am all but sure there are officers or personnel in some military control room thousands of miles away from the attack; not to mention over-zealous secret servants in Washington, all slapping one another on the back as though they have all actually done something heroic to defend their county. Yet from this layman’s perspective, I don’t much find using a robot to sneak up on an enemy and perform an assassination much to be proud of. To the contrary, isn’t a drone mission an act of terror in itself? And if so, doesn’t it therefore seem logical to ask oneself if America has become a nation which hunts down people whom we suspect may do us harm, regardless of any significant capacity for them to do so, just for sport?
