Yes but it should have a more complex authorization process and better intelligence gathering. 6 years ago from a Libertarian in Newport News, VA
Drones should be illegal; they are cheap technology. They can be used against us as easily as we use it against them. They can be used to poison reservoirs, spread poisonous gas, etc. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Seattle, WA
The problem with drone strikes is, while they save soldiers' lives, they claim innocents because of cowards who hide behind civilians. We need to better understand that, when it comes to terrorist groups like al-Qaeda, we are dealing with people who... 6 years ago from a Democrat in Fort Erie, NY
The military should fly drones over foreign countries to gain intelligence but only act to kill known terrorists rather than those they merely suspect. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Riverdale, IL
I believe that we should protect our country but innocence should not die in the process. 6 years ago from a Republican in Fort Erie, NY
Depends on the country. Many countries lack an effective or real government, so there is no one to work with. If the government is working with terrorists (Pakistan?) then we have to reserve our right to pursue them as necessary. However, in the real... 6 years ago from a Green in Miami, FL
Yes, with permission from countries believe in combating terrorism. Those that do not participate should receive no attention, foreign aid, or protection for diplomats. 6 years ago from a Republican in Clarkton, NC
If we had excellent values, which guided our use of the drones, I believe it would often save lives and promote what is good to use drones. But instead it is most often approached through political reasoning rather than determining what is right and good... 6 years ago from a Republican in Los Angeles, CA
The U.S. needs permission from the country in question and only gather intelligence, not to kill suspected terrorists. 6 years ago from a Republican in Sargent, GA
This has to be a case-by-case situation. Teddy Roosevelt said, "Walk softly and carry a big stick" (paraphrase). We need to be able to swing the stick when needed, but we don't need to do it all the time. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Phoenix, AZ
The drone program serves as an intimidation tactic, especially when used within the borders of states such as Pakistan and Yemen, with which the United States is not at war. The program operates with impunity, despite objections by national leaders,... 6 years ago from a Green in Milwaukee, WI
If a country fails to approve overflights, they should be limited to intelligence gathering. If the other government approves, LIMITED use of force may be considered in collaboration with that country. 6 years ago from a Republican in Sylvania, OH
No, Not until there are guidelines drawn for use. 6 years ago from a Republican in Baltimore, MD
Whateve it takes to stop "boots on the ground". 6 years ago from a Democrat in Las Vegas, NV
Only to gather intelligence and kill only when the suspected target identification is confirmed without a doubt. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Philadelphia, PA
Only to gather intelligence and with permission from the country in question. 6 years ago from a Democrat in New Orleans, LA
Only when there are not innocent civilians at risk. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Miami, FL
Yes, for intelligence purposes ingeneral or to attack military targets with permission from the government in question. 6 years ago from a Socialist in Muskegon, MI
No, only to gather intelligence and only with the permission of the country in question. 6 years ago from a Green in Seattle, WA
No, drones should be used as an autonomous police force utilized by the world at large and not a single nation. 6 years ago from a Green in Wichita, KS
No, no more than foreign militaries should be permitted to do so to the US. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Ruston, LA
Yes, but only with sufficient and strong oversight of such activity by Congress. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Providence, RI
Drones are an effective tool, but the should not be used at the expense of capturing terrorists that may have valuable information. 6 years ago from a Republican in Beech Grove, IN
I have only small reservation regarding intelligence gathering, unmanned strikes on ANY targets should be universally outlawed.
I also believe that other developed nations should have the same un impeded fly-over rights by intelligence gathering drones... 6 years ago from a Democrat in Houston, TX
Yes, but in allied countries we should get that government's permission. 6 years ago from a Democrat in College Station, TX
Most citizens, including myself, do not understand the extent of how much terrorism has been stopped by the military. This is something that should not be in the hands of anyone without the knowledge of the entire situation. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Pittsburgh, PA
Limited to information gathering, high level suspected terrorists under the limited circumstances allowed under International Humanitarian Law. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Washington Navy Yard, DC
No, only to gather intelligence on suspected terrorists and other anti-american organizations. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Eureka, SD
Yes, but less often to avoid blowback. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Edgewater, NY
Drones are simply unmanned aircraft. Focusing on them obscures the real issue, which is whether we should gain intelligence and kill suspected terrorists, period--by whatever method best supports our troops and minimizes civilian casualties. I support... 6 years ago from a Democrat in Austin, TX
