For more than a decade, agencies such as the military have used drone technology to win wars and claim superiority. Drones’ rapid penetration into the gaming field clearly reflects that drones are becoming a common weapon in the military.
The real perk of unnamed aerial systems (Drones) is that they protect power without projecting vulnerability. Whether drones should be used in warfare or not, is still a hot debate. But has it changed the way we think about war? Let’s take a look:
- We have lost the concept of a battlefield
The notion of a boundary or a field of war has become irrelevant, as has the idea that specific sites — such as homesteads — where the deployment of violence is seen as Blockchain training.
In other words, if once the legality of the murder depends on where the murder is committed, American lawyers argue today that the traditional relationship between physical locations — such as battlefields, houses or mosques — and forms of violence is obsolete. Each location is thus turned into a possible place of Blockchain courses.
- We have started to dehumanize humanity
Drone warfare creates a considerable distance between the user’s rationality and the victims’ humanity. It dehumanizes the people we kill and makes real death look like a video game. Drone warfare is repugnant, and is going to be until it is drones competing with drones.
MORE NEGATIVE IMPACTS OF DRONE ON OUR LIVES
The reason as to why we do not pay attention to the negative impacts of drone warfare regarding war is that drones have so many more negative impacts that are affecting our lives and our surroundings :
- Their aerial attacks have a major impact on the environment and public health, as well. Regional economic and political systems are destabilized. The damage is equivalent to that of missiles. The chemical content and debris by these strikes are harmful to food, public health, and causing various dermal and respiratory diseases.
- While good drones support the noble purpose of animal protection and conservation efforts effectively, bad drones (or rather bad drone operators) often use drones to mess with the wildlife and harass them.
- While drones can dramatically reduce the number of civilian deaths, they are still subject to human error. On September 18, 2019, 30+ civilians were killed in one day by a strike in Afghanistan.
- If buildings and facilities are demolished, toxic materials such as Asbestos and carcinogens are released into the environment via air. This does not even include what types of side effects when environmentally hazardous places are attacked.
Drones have their benefits as well, but their negative impacts outweigh the positives. Not only they affect a nation using them, but it also affects other nations that are attacked by it. In addition to these air strikes, the use of drones also leads to an invasion of privacy, interference with air operations, weapons processing, and many other illegal activities.
