For some reason, a cop who is standing about ten feet from some man without a gun can not fire his weapon and hit a leg or arm, he has to blast away at the heart. So, it is good news that a drone up in the sky can not only spot a person in a house and deliver a blast that tears apart the house without damaging the silverware or even slightly wounding another person. According to our experts, there are few times when a drone hits an innocent person. Over the weekend in Pakistan an American drone fired away and killed 31 militants. NO, it did not kill “some,” it killed exactly 31 militants. If you doubt this accuracy, just ask the drone. You see, the drone can see all very clearly, and just by gazing at a face it knows which of these Muslim dudes is the extremist one who has a date with death today. So, who am I to doubt that exactly 31 “militants” died in this raid.
I assume when these “accurate” attacks take place there is no innocent person sleeping in the corner of the room. Nor, when the bomb blasts the room, it does not disturb the baby sleeping in a crib just a room away. Every independent study of drone attacks has uncovered evidence that HUNDREDS of innocent people have been killed by drone attacks. Perhaps, if drones are so accurate they can be placed in charge of training police how to hit an arm or leg rather than a heart?
