The Use of Drones
I have come across some outstanding articles on the topic of the use of drones and the effect it is having in the Middle East.
A Whistleblower Steps Forward on Drones Just published today, this article provides a fantastic link dump to many excellent articles on the topic, two of which I highlight below.
And a (older) book: Predator: The Secret Origins of the Drone Revolution (2014）
Hit the jump for the “Editor’s Note”
Editor’s note: My own take on the use of drones is that while the motivations are different, the acts themselves and the resulting effects on the lives of those under which they reign, are indistinguishable from “terrorist acts”. From a stance of “peace” or “peace keeping”, it is the height of hypocrisy to use attack drones to fight terrorists. I would be happy to debate this in the comments if anyone is interested in exploring this issue further.
