Just war and the use of drones

The Social Ethics class is currently discussing just war (first when and if wars are just, now looking at justice within war).  Here is an interesting interview about our increased reliance on drones.  Those in the Social Ethics course will recognize several issues we have been discussing in class (double effect, what counts as a legit target, etc etc).

Thoughts?

About Kleiner

Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Utah State University. I teach across the curriculum, but am most interested in continental philosophy, ancient and medieval philosophy as well as Catholic thought, all of which might be summed up as an interest in the ressourcement tradition (returning in order to make progress). I also enjoy spending time thinking about liberal education and its ends.
