Drone Warfare Killing By Remote Control By : Medea Benjamin

Drone Warfare Killing By Remote Control
First book on drone warfare, the new warfare system affecting the Indian subcontinent, specially Pakistan and Afghanistan Weeks after the 2002 American invasion of Afghanistan, Medea Benjamin visited that country. There, on the ground, talking with victims of the strikes, she learned the reality behind the ‘precision bombs’ on which US forces were becoming increasingly reliant. Now, with the use of drones escalating at a meteoric pace, Benjamin has written this book as a call to action: ‘It is meant to wake a sleeping public,’ she writes, ‘lulled into thinking that drones are good, that targeted killings are making us safer.’ Drone Warfare is a comprehensive look at the growing menace of robotic warfare, with an extensive analysis of who is producing the drones, where they are being used, who ‘pilots’ these unmanned planes, who are the victims, and what are the legal and moral implications. In vivid, readable style, the book also looks at what activists, lawyers and scientists are doing to ground the drones, and ways to move forward. ‘In reality,’ writes Benjamin, ‘the assassinations the US is carrying out via drones will come back to haunt it when others start doing the same thing – to the Americans.’
