Drones: the new, remotely-controlled threat to peace

DRONES are unmanned aircraft remotely controlled by US soldiers sitting at a computer console in Nevada or New York, that are used to spy on and/or kill people remotely in Pakistan, Yemen and many other countries. The website pakistanbodycount.org estimates 103 drone strikes in Pakistan, between June 2004 to January 30, 2010, which resulted in 1065 civilian casualty deaths.
