Drone On

by Walter H. Everett 10-01-2013

I was appalled to read about Liberty University’s program where they train drone “pilots” for the U.S. government (“Drones for Christ,” by David Swanson, July 2013). I’m at a loss to reconcile such a program with the teachings of the Prince of Peace. Drone warfare seems to be a sophisticated way of exercising a Crusader mentality, especially when carried out by a “Christian” university. This reminds me of a quote I heard almost 50 years ago.
