Drones are unmanned aerial vehicles deployed by U.S. defense and intelligence agencies to collect data and strike suspected enemy targets.
We are killing innocents. We are destroying hospitals by mistake. Sometimes I think about the panic our citizenry would fly into if other nations started using killer drones on us. We would be outraged. And yet here we are, doing this very thing to them.
Any further use of drones to kill should be considered acts of war only if the terrorists are part of the country's political structure, and these instances should be extremely limited if they happen at all. Use for intelligence is probably fine (for the most part).
The government should not kill anyone “suspected” of anything. If the government has absolute proof of terrorist acts against the US or close allies it has the right to kill that person as a combatant on the battlefield. Killing of people simply suspected is inflammatory and would do more harm than good.
