Unmanned aerial warfare: continues in Yemen

June 5, 2012

Unmanned aerial warfare: Flight of the drones | The Economist.

Although this is not a recent article, I have flagged it up because the ongoing attacks in Yemen and elsewhere are not widely reported. These remote strikes from the air continue, but are they justified? Will they help the “West” win the “War on Terror” or just reinforce the termination of the al-Qaeda to recruit more supporters?

We are told that President Obama personally signs off the authority for each lethal strike. 215 and counting.

And of course the manufacture of this hardware continues to create jobs, helping the US economy. Sick but true.
