inb4 drones are bad butthurt nonsense

Drones save a lot money, time, and American lives, and the unfortunate fact that they're responsible for minor collateral damage and a few civilian casualties isn't enough to completely warrant that they be phased out of combat

theres a professor here at UNLV (predator pilots are stationed near vegas) who is doing research on the fact that predator pilots suffer more PTSD than infantry soldiers, due to the fact that they arent constantly exposed to combat, and go home to a family that they cant talk to about their experiences with, like a grunt can with his battlebuddies. as a grunt, im skeptical of her research, but it made sense when she explained it in her lecture. thoughts?

Some people saw the creation of unmanned combat Mobile Suit as a solution to the warfare that long plagued the Earth Sphere. Without the casualties that resulted from traditional combat, the most horrifying aspect of war, death, was all but removed. But the Mobile Doll was fundamentally a weapon of mass destruction, and when you remove the human element from that destruction, warfare becomes all the more meaningless.

I wont lie on my last deployment I didn't exactly see any crazy **** but I mean I saw enough and I don't have any ptsd or that **** but I hear about these drone operators applying for mental help for ptsd and I'm just a little shocked.

When you're flying am F-16 or F-18 or really any fighter air craft you don't really see the complete physical devastation of your payload (you're sight is obstructed by the aircraft and the sheer fact you're traveling so fast). But in a drone you have thermal imaging and are travelling much slower than a jet. You see the blood and the body parts that go spraying when you make a successful hit. It's like putting a grenade in someones tac-vest and running to a safe distance and watching them explode. Pretty harsh stuff.

These guys are the poor ******* . Thought they'd bet getting into aviation and possibly setting up for a good career in the airlines, or a job as a fighter pilot for a decade.

Noooo. They're stuck in a chair in a box, flinging death missles from halfway around the world. There's nowhere to go from that job. Once you're done, you've exhausted the opportunites available from that training.

There's some sort of underlying thing or story behind this that's stopping me from understanding the joke.

US military came out with a medal for drone pilots that would be above the Purple Heart and Bronze Star (With Valor).
Essentially saying that a Drone pilot sitting in a chair 6000 miles away can be awarded a medal that you generally give to soldiers in the field.
The medal has since been knocked down a few notches after massive complaint from the military community.

The medal is gone now just so you guys know

I can only imagine how pissed off veterans who actually toured iraq or afghanistan must be to see one of these drone operators with a medal. Earned while half a world away from the actual conflict.

Drone operators getting distinguished warfare medals is ******* retarded.
