You are correct sir, definitely paints the picture and fills in the blanks.

When the weapons of war become so uncivilized that soldiers actually quit over it we need to reconsider whether such weapons should be used at all.
The first man to drop the atomic bomb killed himself too.
There is no honor or courage required for long-distance killing by remote control.


WHO was the first man to drop the A-bomb? Paul Tibbets... pilot of the Enola Gay, died at 92 y.o. in his home, complications of old age.

Drone pilots hours do not count as flight hour after service.

Military pilots can become commercial pilots based on military flight records.

None of the drone pilots hours count unless they are in the plane.

The US Navy at NWC China Lake had a target drone pilot that was afraid to fly and had never flown in a plane.

There are many drone pilots that are not manned pilots.

Takeoff and landings are handed off to other operators usually. No doubt they are trained for it though.
