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.

We should not get ourselves entangled in overseas conflicts that do not concern us.

I believe that we should ask for the nation's permission to do both kill terrorist, and gather intelligence, unless the nation in question is not a trusted ally, or supports the terrorist organization.

@9H9X276Veteran from Massachusetts answered…1yr

They shouldn't be doing it, but there should not be restriction on it

@9H9JBPJRepublican from Maryland answered…1yr

Yes but only if we’re actively engaged in combat with that country.

@Jennifer-Gundlac…Green from California answered…1yr

Yes, with permission from the country in question, but only for information gathering purposes. Killing is something that I believe is an act of war and should be subject to congressional oversight/approval.

@9H8VMJSPeace and Freedom from Wisconsin answered…1yr

Yes, if there has been a Congressional declaration of war with the foreign countries

@9H7MN2DRepublican from California answered…1yr

This question is misleading. It should not be against the law to do so but there should be very few circumstances where it would be used - Yes to save American lives.

@9H6DLLHWomen’s Equality from Georgia answered…1yr

Yes, but no be allowed to kill people just to gain intelligence

@9H3DKL4Democrat from Illinois answered…1yr

No only to gather intel with permission from the countries in question and not to kill suspects without due process. Killing a suspect vs a confirmed known threat like Hitler is inhumane.

@Stephen-Justus-M…Veteran from Missouri answered…1yr

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).

@9GY6LWRConstitution from Florida answered…1yr

yes, to gain intelligence and to defeat terrorists intent on committing violence (with sufficient evidence)

@9GY3DH5Women’s Equality from Illinois answered…1yr

@9GWXJJQDemocrat from Wisconsin answered…1yr

not just suspected are the us sure they are terrorists or not because you cant kill someone you suspect you have to have pure evidence in order to kill them.

@9GTWDTXWomen’s Equality from Michigan answered…1yr

I think the US should stop interfereing with other countries

@9GST4NLTranshumanist from Montana answered…1yr

Only with probable cause and proper approval, but they may not kill anyone.

@9GRWZ2YVeteran from Massachusetts answered…1yr

@9GQFBH7Working Family from Ohio answered…1yr

Yes, assuming the country in question is cooperative (other than countries we know harbor and sponsor terrorists) and there is undeniable evidence that us killing said suspect would save lives.

@9GNDHJQWomen’s Equality from Missouri answered…1yr

Only to gather intelligence, and then send in special forces to do their job. We should never put innocent lives at risk.

@9GMV5PNVeteran from Utah answered…1yr

of course we should spy, but don't need to do strikes unless it's a defensive measure.

@9G3YQYQWomen’s Equality from California answered…1yr

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.

@9G3RK2DWomen’s Equality from Florida answered…1yr

Maybe to gather intelligence but not to kill unless maybe we are legally declared at war.

@9FYGX9WDemocrat from Maine answered…1yr

They can to gather intelligence, with the country's permission, not to kill suspected terrorists

@9FQV7ZWConstitution from Indiana answered…1yr

Yes, if we are at war with or within that country. If not, then only with the country's permission.

@9FMMGSMRepublican from Utah answered…1yr

@9FLQMYZWomen’s Equality from California answered…1yr

Yes, but we should not kill unless given proof and consent within the country.

@9FH8VZHProgressive from California answered…1yr

No, only if a high target is hiding in their country and killed by either quietly or an elite group on the ground for the fast-paced event. Other than that, congressional war is needed first.

@9FGWMD4Constitution from Utah answered…1yr

No, the U.S. should not be militarily active without declaring war on another country

@9FGJGKQWomen’s Equality from Connecticut answered…1yr

@9F9LJ4JDemocrat from Wisconsin answered…1yr

Yes, but only to gather intelligence unless there is a Congressional declaration of war.

@9F8CBJSDemocrat from Oklahoma answered…1yr

Yes, but with permission from the country and we have probable cause.

@9VXNN25Constitution from Indiana answered…2mos

@9VKSR4XPeace and Freedom from Iowa answered…3mos

No, we should not gather intelligence nor kill suspected terrorists without complete confirmation they are the correct target

@9VFH6WYRepublican from Illinois answered…4mos

They should be able to gain intelligence on suspected terrorists but only if they are confirmed and have killed people and done harm should they be killed.

@9VFGYH9Republican from Texas answered…4mos

Yes, but only with permission from the country in question. Unless it is a country in which a us involved conflict is already occurring.

@PerkiLlamaWomen’s Equality from Florida answered…4mos

Yes, and traffickers in the United States should be equal to terrorists and we should fly drones in our nation to dismantle those terrorizing Americans with systemic drug abuse.

@9V4PZ9SLibertarian from Pennsylvania answered…5mos

This is highly situational and I cant judge it without being in the situation with all the info. However we probably do it too much.

@9TYDGMKProgressive from Ohio answered…5mos

@9TRZTYFWorking Family from Kansas answered…5mos

This one is iffy. As long as you aren't constantly inadvertently killing innocents.

@9TLXFMNWomen’s Equality from Pennsylvania answered…6mos

If given permission we should fly drones to gain intelligence, but we should not kill suspected terrorists without absolute proof they have committed an act of terrorism

@9THZ73PProgressive from Florida answered…6mos

No, due to the amount of civilian causalities caused in airstrikes.
