Debate Summary

Are drone attacks neccessary?
Do Drone Attacks Do More Harm Than Good?
Will drone strikes bring about peace?

The United States government has made hundreds of attacks on targets in northwest Pakistan since 2004 using drones (unmanned aerial vehicles) controlled by the Central Intelligence Agency's Special Activities Division. These attacks are part of the United States' War on Terror campaign, seeking to defeat Taliban and al-Qaeda militants in Pakistan. Most of these attacks are on targets in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas along the Afghan border in Northwest Pakistan. These strikes were begun by President George W. Bush and have increased substantially under the Presidency of Barack Obama. Some media refer to the series of attacks as a "drone war".

Cabbage (Con) CABBAGE (Con) - No. Drone attacks are unnecessary. These attacks need to halt. Dropping bombs will not bring about peace. The true terrorists are those dropping the bombs. Innocent lives are being destroyed and lots of horror/terror is being committed for money...

Innocent lives are being destroyed and lots of horror/terror is being committed for money/oil. Stop the drone attacks. The people are outraged. If not, then war in retaliation will be imminent.
