Little courage in killing with drone

Published 22/09/2015

Now that we've recognised "the few" who so courageously defended our country during the Battle of Britain, it's only fair to pay tribute to the skill of the brave RAF pilot who flew the drone that executed two fellow citizens in Syria.

It must take a special form of cold-blooded courage to sit 1,000 miles from danger and track unsuspecting men on a TV screen before pressing a button and watching them blown to bits.
