    My name is Hector Lopez and I am from Lima, Peru. I've just came across your forum while surfing on the net in search of legal doctrine referring to the use of drones and targeted killings. I'm journalist and lawyer and usually write to Peruvian military magazines. I'm very interesting in the subject of the use of drones. A year and half ago I wrote an article on military robots and it's introduction to the battlefield in Iraq and Afghanistan. I'd appreciate your collaboration to gather info and different viewpoints and perspectives on the subject I'm currently writing about.

    Hello Hector - Welcome to the playground. Hope you have fun here and play nicely with the other kids. So, you're from Lima, huh? I think that's great. I've always been a big fan of Lima beans... A little humor for you there. Again, welcome.

    Well, you will find a good number of drones on this board. As for their ability to kill targets.................................

    Welcome to the board, Hector.

    Drones are fascinating, safe to fly, deadly when need be...but really nothing more than super-sophisticated model airplanes controlled by radio signals.

    I think the one in this picture is being operated from Colorado.

    This is the smaller of the drones I saw in (where I was). You can see the larger model (with upward pointing tail control surfaces) in its hangar to the left.

    You can probably get more information of drones from google than you can here.

    Hola. I was in Lima last year. Had a great time and the people were fantastic. Unfortunately, I only got to hang around for 5 days, so didn't get to travel around much.

    Welcome.
