Drones key to terrorism

Terrorism is dominating our news.  Unfortunately proposed solutions related to increasing military attacks will only increase the numbers of people joining terrorist organizations because joining ISIS is seen as the way for Middle Easterners to react to the military attacks by Western nations.

The following is from a letter former drone pilots sent to the President:

“We came to the realization that the innocent civilians we were killing only fueled the feelings of hatred that ignited terrorism and groups like ISIS, while also serving as a
fundamental recruitment tool similar to Guantanamo Bay. This administration and its predecessors
have built a drone program that is one of the most devastating driving forces for terrorism and
destabilization around the world. ”
