Arming drones to kill by remote control
|Drone Warfare (Medea Benjamin)|
The U.S. government has been deploying drones in the geopolitical Middle East, South Asia, Africa, and at home through any police department that wants them.
The U.S. military and CIA initially used drones mainly for surveillance, but now these remotely controlled armed vehicles are routinely used to launch missiles on human targets in countries where the United States is not at war -- including Pakistan, Central Asian lands, Somalia, and Yemen.
The majority of people killed include countless noncombatants and even American citizens in covert missions.
