Am I the only person who’s a bit bothered about the obsession with drone aircraft in the pro-war camp and in the media? After the war in Afghanistan and our assassination of people assumed to be al-Qaeda members in Yemen using Predator unmanned aircraft, they seem ominous, but what are we really talking about with regard to Iraq? Building unmanned aircraft seems like a challenge from next year’s Junkyard Wars to me. If Iraq wants to blow things up that are far away, can’t they just use guided (or unguided) missiles?
