We Kill Because We Can: From Soldiering to Assassination in the Drone Age

by Laurie Calhoun
£9.99   paperback  Zed Books Ltd (2016)

We Kill Because We Can: From Soldiering to Assassination in the Drone Age by Laurie Calhoun A disturbing and controversial exposé of the ethics of remote-controlled warfare in the twenty-first century.
 
Welcome to the Drone Age. Where self-defense has become naked aggression. Where courage has become cowardice. Where black ops have become standard operating procedure. In this remarkable and often shocking book, Laurie Calhoun dissects the moral, psychological, and cultural impact of remote-control killing in the twenty-first century.
 
Can a drone operator conducting a targeted killing be likened to a mafia hitman? What difference, if any, is there between the Trayvon Martin case and the drone killing of a teen in Yemen?
 
We Kill Because We Can takes a scalpel to the dark heart of Western foreign policy in order to answer these and many other troubling questions.
