    I disagree the next "big one" will be about dimishing resources and lack of usable space.

    I didn't mean the cause of the war but rather the primary armaments used in the conflict.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    When a country fails to remove/prosecute/mitigate terrorists or guerillas within its' borders and allows or perhaps encourages or otherwise supports the activities of these terrorists outside its borders, that country is begging for a drone attack. Other than that, I think they should be illegal because they are a violation of sovereign airspace. I think if drones fly over my airspace, it is open season year round.

    This thread is apparently aimed at a country doing that to us or so it seems.

    In my view there are two issues;

    Drone Bombing: If we were at war (constitutional) with another country, then drones are legal and will be used.
    If we are not a war with another country then what we are doing is illegal and should be viewed by the other country as an act of war. The same would be true if another country would be doing this to us.

    Drone Spying; Although there are legal issues here we and other countries have been doing stuff like this for years and will continue as far into the future as I can see. right or wrong.

    Ok Yeah the trend seems to be for stealth based unmanned weapons and survellience. This would go along with a smaller more mobile armed forces

    Agreed. The fight for resources and territory will be additions to the ideological struggle of today. Drones will just be the vehicle by which actions are carried out.

I decided to come up with this poll question because I have been thinking for awhile about how our government sends drones into Pakistan to kill people that if I was the citizens of that country the Pakistani politicians who gave the okay for such a thing would be getting lynched and publicly executed for allowing such a breach of sovereignty for the civilian causalities those drone strike sometimes cause.


    Should it be okay for other nations to send drones into your country to kill and or spy on people?

    Yes
    No
    I do not know
    Sure. As well as any other nation who wants nuclear weapons should have them, as well.

    For the most part, yes, we should allow other countries if we cannot control terrorists in our own country that plot and carry out attacks on another countries citizens. Whatever means necessary, and name a war or conflict that didn't have innocent victims. For example, imagine if we had cells of environmentalist wackos that attacked mecca during the hajj period murdering thousands of innocents similar to 9/11 because they were trying to force the Sausis to stop selling us oil. Do you think, the Saudis would have a vested interest with us to eliminate these hippie freaks?

    Sure, I'll get some good target practice out of it.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    I think you are right, but we should have some strong oversight as to who is deemed a viable threat and "America's problem". It costs money to do any kind of strike like that (intelligence/maintenance/fuel, etc.), plus it could cost innocent lives. And I can't imagine what it feels like living in a country where drone strikes are a possibility. Scary.

    I do like the fact that it doesn't put any of our men and women in direct harm, though. Robot army = delicious.
