Drone warfare - Raining death by remote control

with Rachel McNeill


Set your Internet Browser to OBR.FM.


The unmanned aerial killing machines known as drones have increasingly
become a central feature of U.S. military force. The Pentagon loves drones
because they are much cheaper than manned military aircraft, and because,
since they are flown remotely, the flight crew is not in physical danger.
But international controversy over the use of drones has been huge,
including questions over the accuracy of their targeting (how often are
innocent civilians inadvertently targeted?), their use as weapons of
high-tech assassination against political targets, and even the question of
the psychological impact, both on drone victims and on drone pilots, who may
be no closer to the mayhem they cause than a computer screen half a world


Rachel McNeill is an Occupier and an Iraq veteran, who has been active with
both Occupy Boston's Free School University and the Veterans for Peace.  She
has spent the last six weeks studying War Crimes, Genocide, and Justice. has
heard all the arguments against, and the arguments in favor of drones.  She
will talk to us about the moral, legal and psychological aspects and impacts
of drone warfare.
