Concerning the drones being tested at Aberporth MoD Research Station
We would like to point out a number facts:- Of all people who are killed by militarydrones one third are Civilians who have no connection with terroists or insurgent activities in Afghanistan or Iraq. Israel has used drones to assinate members of the Palestinian leadership. Drones tested at Aberporth are used to gain intelligence and for target acquisition in Afghanistan and Iraq. They, therefore have some moral responsibility for all the deaths caused by these drones. They may also be engaged in other nefarious activities which remain classified.
At the time of cuts in front-line services for the British by the government because of financial constraints, we as as a society should not be spending money on drones to kill people.
