Actually, drone attacks save lives. The only difference between a drone and a conventional plane is that one is piloted remotely. So if a drone gets shot down, the pilot's life is spared. If a conventional plane is shot down, the pilot can be killed. Both types of aircraft have been known to kill innocent people but both are still a good weapon against terrorists. So it's not the drone technology that's responsible for killing innocent people any more than you can say that any bomb dropped by a conventional plane has the potential to kill an innocent person too. It's the fact there is a war going on and no matter what weapon we use, there's a potential for collateral damage.

Latest comment: Greenday sang a song about people like you, I think it was called "American Idiot". You should look up meaning of terrorist and educate yourself.
