How are drones shaping the future of war? | Inside Story

Drones, or unmanned aerial vehicles, are changing the way militaries around the world conduct their operations.
The United States and others, say they prefer them to sending in jets or using other weapons.
Now, with the crisis in the Gulf, the UK is reportedly considering using them in the region.
They would help with surveillance as British warships escort oil tankers through the Strait of Hormuz, which began after Iran seized a British-flagged tanker last month.
So, how will these unmanned aircraft shape future conflicts?

  28. All are wrong here. The use of drones makes it cut and dry on use of force. Use IT. And cutting out the pilot only males it so much easier. And targeting is the core issue here, and not precision. Even a smart weapon used in offensive purposes. But targeted to kill say 1 or 2, but used to kill in a crowded area. Still kills a lot of people. At weddings, at hospitals, at private residence in a congested place. Make precise weapons just as dumb and destructive. Whether killed by dumb bombs or a drone. The innocents killed are still dead. The only safe persons are the ones giving orders and the remote pilots. Who in their right minds can be alright with going after 1 or slightly larger number of people. But order say a school, hospital, school bus, and so on, to be attacked to kill a few. All the panelalist are JUST WRONG.

  31. What's "legal" about war? Kill or be killed

  32. If you are bombing people with drones, then you are the terrorist, hiding thousands of miles away with your videogame controler, and a bowl of beef jerky. I am not saying drones are not good for some cases, but we use them as cowards who would rather dominate and demoralize, rather than just leave people alone.

  33. What could be wrong with murdering people and countless innocents around them without arrest, trial, or any legal process? Hundreds of thousand s of people have been killed by drones. Worst of all is the practice of rebombing the same target after first responders and family have come to rescue wounded. Hard to say you are targeting one or more bad guys when you send the second bomb to just increase the body count. All "Enemy Combatants".

  34. The rule of law is mattering less and less to the most dangerous this world has known, the empire is falling, love not this world, nor your life. If your already dead to this world, sounds like it should be easier than it is. But anyway persevere, remember the blood. The word.

  35. We will never forget what US drones did in Pakistan

  37. Can we call robo-hounds drones?
