Really, what does it matter what I think? It’s being done. It is the 1 percent who decide these things. We the 99 percent have to endure their lapses of judgment.
Do I think it’s unethical? Yes. And no. Sending out the drones save a lot of lives. The American soldiers don’t have to be on the field getting shot at. The drones can be sent in to do the job, thus saving a lot of American lives. So using the drones this way, I can agree to. But just the thought of sending these drones out, scares me. What if the operator makes a miscalculation and the drones hit a lot of civilians. Innocent civilians who have done nothing. I think it’s happened a few times
. The other day, I heard that 24 Pakistani soldiers suffered this fate. They were all killed. The drones were mis-directed. This is what scares me. The mis-directed drones. What if, some day, one of these drones changed direction and headed for the United States. Then what?
So in one way I think it’s ethical, but in another way unethical. I really think something should be done about improving misdirection of drones.
