Abstract: 

Uninhabited aerial vehicles (UAVs or “drones”) can be used to locate and kill an enemy on the other side of the world. An American sitting in the United States, for example, can “fly” a Predator drone over Pakistan. Using the camera mounted on the drone to identify a human target on the ground, the drone operator can then use the drone’s Hellfire missiles to strike that individual.
