Yes but it should have a more complex authorization process and better intelligence gathering. 5 years ago from a Libertarian in Newport News, VA
Drones should be illegal; they are cheap technology. They can be used against us as easily as we use it against them. They can be used to poison reservoirs, spread poisonous gas, etc. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Seattle, WA
Yes to combat terrorism, but there needs to be complete transparency in their motives and reasoning. Also must be done with the permission of the country infiltrated. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Fort Sill, OK
The problem is not the weapon but the targeting. "Signature Strikes" should not be allowed and better intelligence needs to be used in targeting decisions. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Washington, DC
The problem with drone strikes is, while they save soldiers' lives, they claim innocents because of cowards who hide behind civilians. We need to better understand that, when it comes to terrorist groups like al-Qaeda, we are dealing with people who... 5 years ago from a Democrat in Fort Erie, NY
At times. We need to weigh all options and consider all costs and benefits including how it will affect our geopolitical situation with the countries involved. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Nashville, TN
The military should fly drones over foreign countries to gain intelligence but only act to kill known terrorists rather than those they merely suspect. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Riverdale, IL
I believe that we should protect our country but innocence should not die in the process. 5 years ago from a Republican in Fort Erie, NY
If we had excellent values, which guided our use of the drones, I believe it would often save lives and promote what is good to use drones. But instead it is most often approached through political reasoning rather than determining what is right and good... 5 years ago from a Republican in Los Angeles, CA
The U.S. needs permission from the country in question and only gather intelligence, not to kill suspected terrorists. 5 years ago from a Republican in Sargent, GA
For Investigational purposes only.
Suspects need not be put into retirement (killed) unless if they are committing criminal acts that have been noticed and/or are a part of the world's Most Wanted list and they refuse to be arrested to the fullest. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Lynn, MA
National Security is a principle responsibility of the Federal Government. Killing terrorist outside the US is therefore a valid use of assets. It should have restrains like the need for Executive Order, or whatever. 5 years ago from a Republican in Lancaster, VA
I look at it this way... how would the U.S. react to a foreign country doing the same thing to us? If we do it now, we cannot cry foul when our enemies have the capability and means. It's just opening a new can of worms and we have enough of those... 5 years ago from a Democrat in Athens, GA
The drone program serves as an intimidation tactic, especially when used within the borders of states such as Pakistan and Yemen, with which the United States is not at war. The program operates with impunity, despite objections by national leaders,... 5 years ago from a Green in Milwaukee, WI
Yes, as long as we realize that other countries have the right to to do the same to us. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Pompano Beach, FL
If a country fails to approve overflights, they should be limited to intelligence gathering. If the other government approves, LIMITED use of force may be considered in collaboration with that country. 5 years ago from a Republican in Sylvania, OH
No, they should be eliminated all together. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Little Rock, AR
Yes, to gather intelligence and kill only reasonably confirmed terrorists. 5 years ago from a Libertarian in Bellevue, NE
No, Not until there are guidelines drawn for use. 5 years ago from a Republican in Baltimore, MD
No, murder is bad, mkay. I don't care what you call it. 5 years ago from a Libertarian in Annapolis, MD
Only to gather intelligence and kill only when the suspected target identification is confirmed without a doubt. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Philadelphia, PA
Only to gather intelligence and with permission from the country in question. 5 years ago from a Democrat in New Orleans, LA
No, the military should not have the right to fly over another country, as it can be seen as an invasion of privacy if they pose no threat to our country. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Harrisburg, PA
Yes, but only to countries that are a direct threat to our national security (North Korea), and any other country if they allow us. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Richmond, VA
Yes, for intelligence purposes ingeneral or to attack military targets with permission from the government in question. 5 years ago from a Socialist in Muskegon, MI
No, unless it is beyond reasonable doubt that the foreign government is hiding terrorists, or a terrorist is located there. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Edmond, OK
Yes, only if the suspected men in the country are a major threat to the United States and with information collected the United States should present this to the country housing the suspected terrorists and tell them their plan of action before... 5 years ago from a Republican in Darlington, SC
No, no more than foreign militaries should be permitted to do so to the US. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Ruston, LA

No, only to gather intelligence, not to kill suspected terrorists, but only with the permission of the country in question. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Stokes, NC
Where do we draw the line? Countries we don't like and who harbor terrorists?
Basically we have enough resources to gather intelligence. Killing suspected terrorists seems a bit of a violation of due process, but they are beyond US due process... 5 years ago from a Democrat in Lackey, VA
No, the U.S. military does not have the right to fly unmanned aircraft over foreign countries without a Congressional declaration of war , but if those countries kill any of our citizens , then we should declare it an act of aggression if not war and go... 5 years ago from a Democrat in Lanham, MD
Drones are an effective tool, but the should not be used at the expense of capturing terrorists that may have valuable information. 5 years ago from a Republican in Beech Grove, IN
I have only small reservation regarding intelligence gathering, unmanned strikes on ANY targets should be universally outlawed.
I also believe that other developed nations should have the same un impeded fly-over rights by intelligence gathering drones... 5 years ago from a Democrat in Houston, TX
I have my personal feelings about this but do not feel I have enough knowledge about the subject to make a declaration. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Montgomery, AL
Limited to information gathering, high level suspected terrorists under the limited circumstances allowed under International Humanitarian Law. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Washington Navy Yard, DC
