These drone attacks produce more terrorists. Innocent people are killed - most of the time the terrorists are long gone.
Kill one innocent and you give birth to 10 new terrorists.
Good luck with that.

I bet those British parliamentarians were surprised today ?

The ones that wrote that letter to the United States saying, that the Britain and Western countries are under threat because of US drone attacks provide justification for future terrorist activities...

The UK Ministry of Defence has revealed.....RAF pilots flew armed US drones as part of Nato's military effort in last year's Libyan conflict......The disclosure, slipped out in a parliamentary answer, comes 10 months after the end of a campaign in which the UK government had insisted no British drones, or Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), were involved.

Though that remains true, the MoD has admitted RAF personnel on an exchange programme in the US flew American Predator drones, which were a key component of the air campaign.

As confirmed by Lord Astor, UK personnel embedded within a US unit flew armed remotely piloted air systems missions against Gaddafi's forces in Libya in 2011."

that is 21st century thinking... there are those in the 21st century that have preferred the archaic soldier and musket model...

but on a larger level this will fuel the escalation... if you use drones, prepare to have drones used against you... and then if we have drones from other countries then we must able to arm ourselves with weapons that can defend yourself against drone attacks... which will create a defense mechanism that will neutralize the drones...
