Reza Jafery Posted 4 months ago Which application of drones excites or terrifies you the most? Drones themselves are terrifying. I can't think of a single method to inspire more hate towards a country than using drones offensively. Unforeseen civilian casualties are a given, and there being no pilot just makes it a quicker association between the pain caused and the country that sent the drone. The use of drones is literally creating "terrorists". In all honesty, I don't see how the use of a drone couldn't be considered a terrorist tactic by definition--going on almost any of the hundreds of definitions for terrorism that exist. I do believe that drones can be used positively, to collect data or perform reconnaissance. But at the end of the day, the cons far outweigh the pros in my eyes. I think that continuing to pump money into the development and improvement of drones will lead to more destruction overall. The easier it is to kill without proximity the easier it is to kill without a conscious. Drones represent a sense of detachment to human life that can't be good for the world.
