The emergence of this new technology has sparked widespread debate over the ethical justification of its use both in the United States and around the world. There are essentially two distinct camps in the debate, one endorsing armed drones as an efficacious, novel form of warfare, whereas another criticizing it as
Drone Warfare At this very moment, there is a drone decimating a third world country. A drone, also known as a remotely piloted vehicle (RPV), has many different uses. The first drones were created during WWI which were called the Navy-Sperry flying bomb and the United States Army-Kettering bug; the first time drones were really used was during WWII. Modified Teledyne-Ryan BMQ-34 Firebee Drones were used to complete 3400 reconnaissance missions over Southeast Asia. In 1982, the Israeli military
that technology, there are many conflicts. The U.S. Military using drones has been one of the most highly debated topics. Even through the doubt, Military drones have proven time and time again to work. Drones are being constantly updated and fixing any flaws that they have at the moment. In the future, drone warfare is unavoidable. When drones were first invented, of course, they did not work amazing. Throughout the years that drones have been around, they shown that they are becoming a more advanced
The future of drones use is inevitable. They will keep improving and will continue to be used in the military. The development of drones has led to many uses in war, but has also aroused many questions concerning the morality of its use. However, saving money, resources and most importantly, the lives of soldiers are what makes the benefits of drones greater than the risks.
