    I just got booked this job and respect for you guys for doing my future job. But I signed you for the military knowing I might have to take a life, i chose drones as a career of interest because I knew what I’d be doing. Nobody forced you to pick this job and you could have washed out during your training but you volunteered to do everything you guys did. Don’t be sorry for yourselves and blame the military for your poor choices.

    He did have the choice to refuse the command if he thought it was wrong. They may have replaced him and the next guy may have followed the order but at that point, he would have done all he could do and his conscience would be clear. Every person in the german military during world war 2 had the same decision to make. The difference being, they would have lost a lot more than just their job.

  7. MusaMansa21 on November 11, 2021 at 10:03 am

    just imagine these new drone operators in these countries that have strike drones, lets hope they got a soul

  8. Mohammed Asif Murad on November 11, 2021 at 10:03 am

    the ppl who order the killings should operate the drone too

  9. Musicwizardorfitness on November 11, 2021 at 10:04 am

  10. When Devils Strike on November 11, 2021 at 10:04 am

    Only thing that’s outrageous is that these men signed up in the first place

  11. Jason Lurf on November 11, 2021 at 10:06 am

    Lmao “I signed up for benefits and all I got was the thought that I’m a murderer” you signed up for the military, not Harvard research study.

  12. Caliban Stefanzo on November 11, 2021 at 10:06 am

    They should talk about Monica Witt too since she killed herself after America betrayed her. @usairforce

    Turn yourself Richard Cheney. SBI.

  14. paulnmarshall on November 11, 2021 at 10:08 am

    Idk what they were expecting…Pipeline Patrol? It’s the military

  15. Matt Begley on November 11, 2021 at 10:10 am

    The bill comes due at the end of every meal, you are gonna pay for it in some fashion when you engage in warfare. It will affect you somehow. I dont think think the Air Force did a good job putting these airmen in stressful situations in training imo. It doesnt eliminate the possibility of post-operation issues but it can soften the blow to a degree.

  16. AB C on November 11, 2021 at 10:10 am

    Ummm, Its called WAR for a reason. Do you think for one second that the terrorists would waste any time at all dropping death on us? Life is tough, if you cant do your job, stay home.

  17. m1a2 Abrams on November 11, 2021 at 10:11 am

    3:12 I can still feel my leg… and my arm… even my fingers…the body i lost… the comrades I’ve lost…it won’t stop hurting…its like they’re all still there. You feel it too dont you? I’m gonna make them give back our past.

  18. Holy Fire on November 11, 2021 at 10:12 am

    You just started WW3

  19. abdiaziz mohamed on November 11, 2021 at 10:13 am

  21. Greedy Me on November 11, 2021 at 10:14 am

  23. Steve Damron on November 11, 2021 at 10:21 am

    We had rules of engagement delineated by the Geneva Conventions in the past. Now we have anonymous use of weapons of mass destruction. We are the enemy we’re searching for.

  24. drrider100 on November 11, 2021 at 10:21 am

    they know what they signed up for… its war, this is what happens.

  25. Caliban Stefanzo on November 11, 2021 at 10:22 am

    I’m a DMT USER now only thing that cured my conscious about killing 1,000 women. W.O.A ground scouts recovered all bodies. @mace_wan_jinn

  26. Dabbin appache James on November 11, 2021 at 10:24 am

  30. Caliban Stefanzo on November 11, 2021 at 10:29 am

  31. Devante Young on November 11, 2021 at 10:29 am

    This is why UAV should be exclusive to Army and Navy only SMH

  32. ricecakeFTW on November 11, 2021 at 10:31 am

    Alcohol is also a depressant……which does not help them with their PTSD.

  33. Hlm2001 030115 on November 11, 2021 at 10:33 am

    That free college doesn’t come free brother

  34. Jeremy Jones on November 11, 2021 at 10:34 am

    And they are terrorizing everyone with Havanna Syndrome with those things. They are doing it to me right now. I want them held accountable and held responsible for individual actions. Communistic behaivor.

  35. sidgartha on November 11, 2021 at 10:35 am

    To be apart of protecting your country. I can’t believe what I’m going to see I’m this line of work but hear guys would be the slaves in a Viking village

  36. DevilCookie on November 11, 2021 at 10:37 am

    this clip reminds me the show, Homeland …

  37. Jerome jones on November 11, 2021 at 10:37 am

    Did they just not understand what they signed up for its no different from any other combat role I’m the military

  38. AdamAfA on November 11, 2021 at 10:40 am

    It’s no different than traditional airstrikes. The only difference is that fighter pilots have to work so hard and are so so lucky to be where they are, that they don’t think of quiting and speaking out. It’s much much easier to be a drone sensor operator, so there is not nearly as much disipline about warfare and what they are doing.

  39. Caliban Stefanzo on November 11, 2021 at 10:40 am

    Bro im blowing up the recruiting office @realdonaldtrump

  40. Jeremy Jones on November 11, 2021 at 10:41 am

    They can send sound outside the range of hearing as well as television signals to your mind.

  41. Jim on November 11, 2021 at 10:42 am

    As a Veteran, I am disappointed with these 3 kids.

  42. Jesse Kincannon on November 11, 2021 at 10:46 am

  43. Rob hartles on November 11, 2021 at 10:50 am

    These people look like they should never of joined the military in the 1st place. Look at them they all look like they still live with mum & dad. Only had 1 gf and have an unhealthy obsession with anime.

  44. Crazy Steve on November 11, 2021 at 10:51 am

    You must not think much of your audience’s objective abilities if you need a horror movie like sound track behind a news story

  45. AlmightyRMB on November 11, 2021 at 10:53 am

    If you’re not ready to perform those actions, then you shouldn’t pick the MOS.

  46. dimitri andrei on November 11, 2021 at 10:53 am

    Go hello! Former US drone operator: US military is "worse than the Nazis". Give it to all the group, you, because in a little while, they will introduce these criminal technologies into society, the "faces" for. to guard us from evil people / terrorists etc. The World Government will use them. Don’t sleep with everyone! .

  47. Riojoe on November 11, 2021 at 10:54 am

    American has been carrying these war crimes against Arabs for the past two decades..

  48. Jon Smith on November 11, 2021 at 10:54 am

    What did they think they would be doing? Honestly, you have to have some clue to what you are signing up to do.

  49. Nakia Turner on November 11, 2021 at 10:54 am

    What did he think he was signing up for? To spy on unicorns?
