Re: When someone gets the tech to operate killer drones from thousands of miles away

That's what people thought about using long bows,

And about people wearing camouflage.

And about snipers.

And about dropping bombs from planes.

The history of war has always been about reducing your own side's risk and that normally means being unseen which normally means being farther away. While the other side (and some traditionalists) whine about how it is not sporting, or fair, or some other nonsense about the 'rules' of killing your fellow humans.
