Assalaamu alaikum [peace be to you],
"Godly people invent good and beneficial things. Evil people invent evil and destructive things."
In regions of Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia as well as Sudan–all are Muslim countries— children are having to live with the fear that they could be killed at any point in time while they are sleeping or playing by unmanned drones patrolling the sky.
The US-led western regimes Drone Operators in their air-conditioned rooms in Nevada, the US and Lincolnshire-based drone-command, UK, direct drone operations and launch bombs strikes “using joysticks” against targets more than 9000 miles away like “playing video games”. They don’t see the real genocides and destruction they have caused to the civilians, houses and buildings as well as public infrastructures in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, Libya and Somalia!
The wars that use this kind of technologies are more dangerous for human beings and all other creatures on this planet and the fate of this planet itself because the operators of the games could not see the real genocides and destruction they have caused on the targets down there on the face of earth! What are drones?
Drones are unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). They are aircraft which are either controlled by pilots on the ground, often thousands of miles away from the action, or are programmed to function autonomously without any direct human control. Drones can be used for reconnaisance and surveillance or to drop missiles and bombs. Playstation Mentality
Drones are increasing the remote and robotic nature of modern hi-tech warfare. They are encouraging a ‘Playstation Mentality’ amongst the troops where killing is simply watching the movement of figures or vehicles on the ground, pushing a button and seeing them engulfed in an explosion plume. There is a huge margin of error, often because of faulty intelligence, and civilian casualties are mounting.
Drone strikes are largely not televised, as they happen in areas no film crew given western ‘credibility’ operates. No US soldiers are killed. It is ‘clean, precise and targeted’. And, compared to having actual soldiers on the ground, it is comparatively cheap too.
According to Pakistan body count, 2867 people have been killed or injured by drones in Pakistan alone, with a 2.5% success rate against Al-Qaida. Figures for Afganistan and Iraq are unknown. There is also no measure for the terror and psychological damage being done to the millions of children and adults who are in the constant sights of these unmanned systems.
The “unmanned” aspect of drones is primarily what sets them apart from manned aircraft. This aspect also raises certain moral concerns. The asymmetry of fighting humans with machines that are controlled from a safe distance is cowardly lacking integrity and honor that was once valued during warfare. If such technology is available, then there is a moral duty to employ it in order to save as many lives as possible (which is never considered by the Drone controllers). Another potential moral issue with drones is because they do not allow for pilot casualties, they are used more frivolously. Human lives affected by drone strikes are not regarded with as much consideration as with manned aerial attacks.
The Lord had said in his final testament:
In the name of the God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful,
وَلَا تَحْسَبَنَّ اللَّهَ غَافِلًا عَمَّا يَعْمَلُ الظَّالِمُونَ ۚ إِنَّمَا يُؤَخِّرُهُمْ لِيَوْمٍ تَشْخَصُ فِيهِ الْأَبْصَارُ
And NEVER think that Allah is unaware of what the wrongdoers are doing. He but gives them a respite till a day when eyes will stare (in terror),translation of 14:42
may the God bring justice to the oppressed.
