    Four former US air force service members, with more than 20 years of experience between them operating military drones, have written an open letter to Barack Obama warning that the program of targeted killings by unmanned aircraft has become a major driving force for Isis and other terrorist groups.

    The group of servicemen have issued an impassioned plea to the Obama administration, calling for a rethink of a military tactic that they say has “fueled the feelings of hatred that ignited terrorism and groups like Isis, while also serving as a fundamental recruitment tool similar to Guantánamo Bay”.

    BTW just weeks ago the ACLU was inquiring about details on the Drone programs http://www.theguardian.com/world/20...gram-cia-aclu-lawsuit-anonymous-whistleblower

    Getting rid of our drones would be "a setback"

    If we only used the drones to drop virgins and qarans the world would be a peaceful place.

    Exactly! They were all in line until we started with the drones. Dumbest thing I've read in quite some time.

    But these people aren't Islamic. How can you make people who follow Islam follow an unIslamic group? Right Obama?

    They hated us long before drones were commonly used.

    The drones should be flying 24/7 and fire at any male over the age of 3 years old.

    It says four Air Force guys with twenty years of experience. That's only 5 years per Airman. In other words they're not that experienced.

    Why wouldn't they hate us for invading and occupying their countries? The Playstation Drone Murders Campaign cannot be making us any friends... random murders by robot aircraft? How many stories of weddings being attacked have you read about? And then we come back an hour later and attack any rescuers or survivors on the scene! We need to stop killing people at random. The ragheads had sweet fuck all to do with 9/11.

    But two weeks ago Obama said ISIS was contained. Did something happen?

    ISIS prefers we bomb them with manned jets like the good ol' days!

    This perception that drones are evil is so stupid.

    the biggest reason for ISLAMIC terrorism is not drones. I am not sure what it is, because i do not want to be labeled a racist just for saying facts. even though islam isnt a race.oops i may have said it

    Article is right, so lets stop using robots and go back to putting military lives at stake. Peice of shit Air Force fucks and their high and mighty feelings. Hit a fox hole every now and then and you will not have those feelings.
