    The scariest is the repeated strikes to discourage rescuers, doesn't that violate the Geneva Convention?

    From the narrator of the clip:

    He does not cite any evidence anyone ever said drones would never harm innocent civilians.

    He continues:

    881 civilians killed in 8 years.


    Meanwhile...

    Strategic bombing during World War II - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    The second reason he gives for drones strikes being scary is that "nobody knows how such decisions are being made."

    Uh, just because YOU don't know how they are being made does not mean nobody does.

    Did people like this dweeb find it scary during WWII that for bombing missions "nobody knows how such decisions are made"?

    You see how stupid that sounds?

    He also says "a unilateral campaign of death is untenable". WTF does that even mean, it's unfair the bad guys can't strike back? Awwwwwww...


    His third concern is valid. Militarizing our nation's police force has gotten way out of control. They are no longer the police. They are a domestic military force.
