I wonder how many mistakes are made, and how much do these mistakes actually mean to the Air force?
Is there some one over seeing these operations? are war crimes being commited?

But my biggest problem is that when an aggressor can conduct a war when none of their lives are at risk over an enemy that does put his life on the line is immoral and plainly wrong
The act of war carries no penalty or sacrifice to the users of the drone - just the cost of the missile there fore there is less reasoning against war
