No more killing gamers?

Russian Drone Killers

I can understand how Warlords substitute human gap. During Obama’s service, US used gamers and gaming lovers to kill in the Middle East by killer drones.

When did drones turn into weapons?

Weaponisation [of drones] came almost immediately after 9/11. Predator drones had already observed Osama bin Laden, the al-Qaida leader, from the skies. But the first strike, in October 2001, missed its intended target, Taliban leader Mullah Omar. Some of his bodyguards were killed in a vehicle outside the leader’s compound instead. But this failure did not deter the US.

Technology make our species unique, but the problem are insane minds that get the power to use it.
