UN Human Rights Council has begun a review of the target killings of known terrorists by US drones to challenge the legality of these attacks. CNSNews.com - Targeted Killings, Including U.S. Drone Strikes, Come Under U.N. Human Rights Council Scrutiny I know, I know! Biased source, but the only one I could find! Hopefully, even if the UN says the attacks are illegal and the drone airstrikes must stop, the US will disregard (as other counties do) the order and continue to utilize this very effective weapon. The use of unmanned aircraft, IMHO, is a legit miltiary strategy that should be utilized to fullest extent possible. The unmanned aircraft cuts down on the potential for loss of life for US service members and also eliminates the human error that can occur during flight in a traditional aircraft. If the US were to conduct target killings by foot, then the loss of life on both sides will be greater than what it is now. Just look at our campaign in Fallujah during 2003. Although this was not a target killing mission, it was a blood bath. I had to watch the helos land inside our HQ basecamp to drop off the wounded and dead. I would much rather watch a screen go black after a unmanned aircraft is destroyed than to have watch fellow Marines get off loaded on stretchers! The UN's civilian casulties argument is crap! Today's combatants in the middle east surround themselves in civilians in order to avoid attacks or utilize them as human shields to discredit the country that carries out the attack. If the terrorist orginizations want to step out onto the battle field and fight a traditional war then maybe we'll stop bombing their hideouts that contain non-combatants. Your thoughts.
