Caroline Lederman: The insanity of using drone attacks

To the editor:

When the United States sends drones to other countries, we have become the terrorists. We as a nation have just experienced the Boston Marathon bombings, and we know the trauma that it has caused within us. How can we justify doing that EXACT same thing to other peoples children and families? This is how radicalization happens.

I know each and every reader can imagine how frightened their own children would be as they watched a drone fly overhead and then ‘accidentally’ kill innocent people. Even if the drones kill a ‘bad guy,’ is that any less traumatic? This is insanity. It is wrong. It must stop.
