Der Spiegel has a good exposé on the life of American drone pilots, & how they’re trying to live with the knowledge that they’re killing people from halfway across the world via remote-control.
Drone warfare seems to me like one of the great social injustices of the world. I believe war should never be without a human cost for all sides involved, because otherwise there’s a fundamental lack of motivation to look for alternative solutions. Few things motivate the public (and thus politicians) against war like footage of body-bags coming home. With drones, there’s none of that.
There ought to be another Geneva convention against drone warfare.
