It's easy for us to wonder how "evil" or monstrous someone is for flying drone planes that drop bombs on people, but I think it's important to remember exactly where the finger should be pointed. The guy flying the drone is, after all, doing a job that he is required to fulfill whether he wants to do so or not. So how evil do you have to be to tell that guy to do his job? Or, to sit back in your office thousands of miles away and calmly discuss the likelihood of "collateral damage" while someone else does your dirty work for you, and consequently spends the rest of their life dealing with the emotional and physical ramifications of that decision?
