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.

Yes, so long as it doesn't end up with a full-out war. The purpose of Drone strikes is to avoid large-scale conflict, right?

if the suspect terrorist has actual proof he/she is a terrorist so we’re not killing innocent people

Yes, they should fly drones, but unless they have strong proof/evidence that the suspects actually are terrorists, they shouldn't kill them. But, if they have strong proof, then yes, they should kill them.

@98P4FYC from California answered…2wks

No only for intel reasons kill them once we know all we need to know first if they are terrorists we should investigating them then do whatever we want to do with them.

Yes, but with permission of the foreign government and/or not without a Congressional declaration of war.

@98LCM4L from Florida answered…3wks

As a deployable tactic, yes. As a means to eliminate a target or gather intel when it is not necessary for the US to do it, no.

@98L5NXJConstitution from Utah answered…3wks

Yes but not suspected terrorist, they should be confirmed before killing someone. They should also not have civilian casualties.

@98KFTBN from Oregon answered…3wks

Yes, but they should only kill terrorists if there is proof they committed an attack on US soil

It’s an electronic spy. Don’t need congressional approval. Strikes do.

I believe the US has the right to use drones to gather intelligence, regardless of whether or not they have permission too, but they don't have the right to assassinate suspected terrorists, unless they have permission from the country in question. This strategy promotes peace instead of war.

@7PTCG38Democrat from Wisconsin answered…1mo

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

@7PTCG38Democrat from Wisconsin answered…1mo

Yes, but only to gather intelligence until a Congressional declaration of war justifies striking suspected enemy targets
