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

    Would you be okay with other nations sending drones into your country to kill or spy on people? 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.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    No. If you're a citizen of a country, you should only be able to be prosecuted/executed by that country's government. If the criminals aren't citizens of that country, they should be extradited, not dealt with there.

    The Cold War was about the development and escalation of nuclear armaments.

    The Global War will be about the development and escalation of drone weapons.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    However, a big factor is America can and they can't. I also thnk America enjoys a unique position in the world that makes it okay for us. Sorry if that sounds arrogant, just being honest.

    Ps. I think it's okay for China and Japan to send drones into North Korea if they had them. I think it's okay for Nigeria, Kenya or South Africa to send drones into other African countries experiencing instability or conflict.

    I understand the concern for the breach of the sovereignty of a foreign state and theoretically no, a state should not be allowed to conduct covert operations on foreign soil. But in some ways, this breach of sovereignty is justified.

    On a separate note, order at home can be achieved through executive grip and most importantly, the implementation of a police force. Despite having "judges" and "legislators", there is no real "police force" in the international order to carry out these laws.

    I also don't think that my country should be able to fly drones overhead to spy on my brethren.

    Unless the government of the foreign country authorizes our use of drones in their airspace to attack targets within their borders then we shouldn't (and nobody should) be doing it. Nor should we utilize drone strikes to kill American citizens without the benefit of trial, charges, or convictions....regardless of where they are or what we "know" they've done....unless engaged in an active action of war (i.e. the asshole has a weapon and is assaulting U.S. troops or allies during a war).

    And, as Mickey said, I don't support the use of surveillance drones on U.S. soil by U.S. officials.

    Of course, any country can say that about any other country. And it could be done against our country, someone would do it. And largely use the same rationale.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
