drones drones, go away

The drone is not a weapon designed to increase the accuracy, while minimizing impact on the surroundings, and prevent the loss of home land lives.

It is to abstract and remove the act of war to a machine, to offset the psychological difficulty and personal cost by one degree, as the whole military apparatus does in its hierarchical, small group structure.

This makes for an easier military to run, longer lived soldiers (in the short term), and public indifference who are now very removed from the killing, and can ignore its affects to taste. The drone operates on social and emotional realms of experience, not only the ostensible material. And those who design these drone know this.
