Dreams in Infrared

http://www.spiegel.de/international/world/pain-continues-after-war-for-american-drone-pilot-a-872726.html#spRedirectedFrom=www

#snip#

"A soldier sets out to graduate at the top of his class. He succeeds, and he becomes a drone pilot working with a special unit of the United States Air Force in New Mexico. He kills dozens of people. But then, one day, he realizes he can't do it any more."

Unbelievable accounting that will never make American media. Don't miss the photos. Three parts:

1. The Woes of an American Drone Operator

2. An Unpopular Job

3. No Room for the Evils of the World

1. I remember during Vietnam when bombadiers reportedly started balking

about their targets... I wasn't in a position to know more than rumors but I can see how it happens.

3. That won't happen until all war stops.


A child is killed over there and they convince you it is a dog. A child is killed over here and they tell you it is okay to call it a tragedy.

Sad.
