"...Not everybody attached to the Regime’s Cyber-Killing Corps is haunted by the horrors he has inflicted on defenseless people halfway around the world.

In a 2009 U.S. Naval Academy lecture, Dr. P.W. Singer of the Brookings Institution made reference to what he called 'predator porn' — footage of drone attacks proudly circulated by the people who committed those acts.

In a typical offering, Dr. Singer relates: "A Hellfire missile drops, goes in, and hits the target, followed by an explosion and bodies tossed into the air."

Singer described one clip of that kind, sent to him by a joystick-wielding assassin, that 'was set to music, the pop song 'I Just Want to Fly' by the band Sugar Ray.'

One deskbound drone jockey told Singer. "It's like a videogame. It can get a little bloodthirsty. But it's f****g cool."
