As incredible as it sounds, the U.S. military is coming under attack for its use of unmanned aerial craft, sometimes called drones. Critics, including the usual suspects in the "human rights" community, claim the drones are responsible for unacceptably high levels of civilian casualties.
It is true that missiles launched by drones sometimes hit areas occupied by civilians - but so do missiles and bullets fired by manned aircraft.
Use of drones, often remotely controlled from behind-the-lines bases, safeguards American pilots, aircrews and even ground troops. Certainly, unmanned aircraft equipment and handling needs to be improved - but under no circumstances should the military cease using the drones.
