Forty-five former US military personnel, including a retired army colonel, have issued a joint appeal to the pilots of aerial drones operating in Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Syria and elsewhere, calling on them to refuse to carry out the deadly missions.
In a joint letter, the retired and former military members call on air force pilots based at Creech air force base in Nevada, and Beale air force base in California, to refuse to carry out their duties. They say the missions, which have become an increasingly dominant feature of US military strategy in recent years, “profoundly violate domestic and international laws.”

    There is no possibility whatsoever that a Colonel would tell solders to disobey orders from the officers over them, even if the orders are morally questionable. Every war has collateral damage, we have the least amount of it now due to bomb stirkes being more accurate, in WWII and Nam they just dropped bombs and hoped for the best.
