The U.S. military has been increasingly
depending on the use of drones in its fight against War on Terror. Initially, drones were for the first time
used during the 1990â€™s for the purpose of surveillance as well as reconnaissance.
Currently, under President Obamaâ€™s government, they have turned out to be the
exceptional aerial combat asset in opposition to foreign terrorists. The drones
are controlled remotely by means of satellite (Craciun 56). However, there has been an increase
in ethical debates for and against the use of drones in the fight against War
Warfare that is carried out through
drones portrays the viciousness of human slaughter. However, warfare as well as
killing ought not to be the immediate alternative for resolving social
conflict. The option to attack a target by means of a drone should at all times
be the last resort. The morally upright approach of solving conflicts should
not result in blood or death of individuals (Kleinberg 112). There is a
difficulty in identifying civilians from combatants when using drones in
spearheading a war. At many times, drone attacks result in civilian casualties.
The ethical concerns relate to the due
process as well as accountability. For instance, who makes the decisions
relating to who the target will be as well as whether to carry out a strike?
What are the procedures followed as well as the oversight for the calls? The
responses concerning these questions are blurred. The ethical use of drone in
the battlefield, therefore, melts down to their efficiency. The aspect of
efficiency consists of precision targeting, narrow collateral damage, in
addition to preventing different army
troops from going into a full combat mode.
The society is faced with a moral
dilemma in relation to the use of drones in carrying out military attacks. The
morality of drone warfare poses a lot of dilemmas in the current society. This
is because an inappropriate use of a drone may pose a big risk to the lives of
human beings. Different questions have come up from the use of drones. For
instance, how can one be certain that he or she has identified a suitable
target? What is the appropriate way of using such advanced warfare weapons?
Another ethical consideration in the
use of drone in warfare should apply the principle of humanity that states one
ought to avoid suffering as well as the unnecessary damage of property.
The concern is not that the drone
technology has brought about a new type of weapon that our conventional moral
concepts may not cope with, but rather, the concern is that the clear ease of
deploying drones has made some ignore as well as evade the conventional
standards that validate force since they are â€œefficientâ€ in this irregular war
in opposition to non-state participants.
The moral justification language is
comprehensively saturated in the concept of use of drones in wars. The very
subject of ethics means that it is not possible to have an extra-ethical
situation. The task of ethics is to remind people that they should not call
something legitimate by virtue of the power they have (Lees 54).
