    Requirements: A geek who is able to Jerk off to kim K and drink a ton of cocacola, red bull and gatorade. and also use joystics to fly simulated aircrafts. So basically a gamer who lives in his mother’s basement, the only difference being that the mother here is replaced by the queen.

    such a boring job (if we can call it a job). In USA there is a shortage a drone pilots. Due to pilot’s burnout.. just check articles.

    it takes no courage to kill people from a safe distance, using a video game… our military is a bunch of fucking pussies.

    No pride, no honor, no dignity in what these pawns do, total cowards.

    People who think its a game are the same people who have never played a modern game in their life.

    What is it like to kill real people in a video game?

    horrified to watch this painful documentary, to pin such hatred and dislike to the pilots of the RPAS systems is just disrespectful. making such naive assumptions as to the ease of their job is disgraceful. The RPAS systems are piloted from far away where the pilot is not able to be harmed, however here is the key word… PRECISION strikes allow the forces to make safe interceptions and killings where necessary. It is no colder to pull the trigger behind the computer screen than it is to pull the trigger on your assault rifle in another land. The modern British military focuses specifically on precision as well as safe measures of intervention in warfare, don’t be confused. Don’t assume. Whatever is carried out it will never please everyone, after all it’s warfare.

    I love seeing people cry over dumb sh** ๐Ÿ˜‚. All talking about "honor" hah, cause those terrorists would kill others with "honor". You people actually think strapping a bomb to your chest or a kids chest is "Honorable" ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚You people are hilarious!
