We are killing innocents. We are destroying hospitals by mistake. Sometimes I think about the panic our citizenry would fly into if other nations started using killer drones on us. We would be outraged. And yet here we are, doing this very thing to them.

No because it violates international as well as constitutional law. Plus again the US has had a history with the intelligence community of taking out interests the administration sees as a threat to their world view without due process and sometime much intelligence. I'm pro intelligence community but just saying what has happened in places like Iran recently

@9YHW8BNDemocrat from Utah answered…2mos

No, only to gather intelligence, not to kill suspected terrorists. Get better evidence than "suspected" first.

Yes, but in a limited way with reliable intelligence information

@9VFH6WYRepublican from Illinois answered…7mos

They should be able to gain intelligence on suspected terrorists but only if they are confirmed and have killed people and done harm should they be killed.

@9VFGYH9Republican from Texas answered…7mos

Yes, but only with permission from the country in question. Unless it is a country in which a us involved conflict is already occurring.

@PerkiLlamaWomen’s Equality from Florida answered…7mos

Yes, and traffickers in the United States should be equal to terrorists and we should fly drones in our nation to dismantle those terrorizing Americans with systemic drug abuse.

@9V4PZ9SLibertarian from Pennsylvania answered…8mos

This is highly situational and I cant judge it without being in the situation with all the info. However we probably do it too much.

This one is iffy. As long as you aren't constantly inadvertently killing innocents.

@9TLXFMNWomen’s Equality from Pennsylvania answered…9mos

If given permission we should fly drones to gain intelligence, but we should not kill suspected terrorists without absolute proof they have committed an act of terrorism

@9THZ73PProgressive from Florida answered…9mos

No, due to the amount of civilian causalities caused in airstrikes.

@9T5R4YQVeteran from Arizona answered…10mos

Yes, but only allowed to kill if there is undeniable evidence that they are planning an attack or have committed an attack

@9T5JVR8Constitution from Colorado answered…10mos

To collect intelligence and kill confirmed terrorists, not to kill suspected terrorists

@9SXK2PDVeteran from Pennsylvania answered…10mos

Yes, but only in nations that are actively hostile to us, housing terrorists etc.

@9SM7LLGDemocrat from Florida answered…11mos

Drones should first be used for intelligence, but until authorized, should hold fire.

@9SHRTRLVeteran from Texas answered…11mos

Need to get out of the middle east it is a lost cause and lost war

@9SBWVXWSocialist from New York answered…11mos

No, only with permission from the people of the country in question via referendum held there and only with congressional approval.

@9S6KG3YGreen from Alaska answered…11mos

@Neel-TrivediTranshumanist from California answered…12mos

Yes, but only with permission from the country in question & only to gain intelligence.

@9RPGFHWSocialist from Ohio answered…12mos

It's beyond important for advisors and politicians to have the highest quality intelligence provided to them. That being said, drone sorties with the purpose of killing confirmed terrorists (nothing should be authorized for mere suspects) should be kept to an absolute minimum to reduce the civilian casualty rate.

@9RNCG82Veteran from Montana answered…12mos

No, They can gather intelligence but cannot kill the suspected terrorist until it is confirmed that they are a terrorist.

 @9R88R5LTranshumanist from Nevada answered…1yr

yes, to gather intel., only kill if truly actionable intel. collected and vetted.

@9NSM5XXRepublican from Arizona answered…1yr

I agree with drones and seeing if they are a terrorist but, I want them to ask the country in question, and to only do whatever with the terrorist only if they know FOR SURE if they are one or not.

We shouldn't be trying to fix other people's situations unless it is threatening our safety
