UN Calls for End to Use of Drones

'The United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) has called for a global freeze on the use of drones as the US killer drone strikes continue to take innocent lives in several countries.

The recent UNHCR report seeks a moratorium on the “testing, production, assembly, transfer, acquisition, deployment and use” of fully or semi-autonomous weapons including drones and robots until an international forum can establish rules for their use.

The use of drones violates international law, the report stated.Christof Heyns, a South African professor of human rights law and author of the report, said the United States, the UK and the Israeli regime in particular have developed killer robots dubbed Lethal Autonomous Robotics (LAR) that can attack targets without any human input.'

Bait and switch anyone?

All you gun lovers are drone haters, right? Well, I'm from the UN, I'm here to help... I will take those big, bad drones away from your crazy Uncle... and while I am here, I'll need all the "little drones" you call "bullets."

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

I don't trust the

got-to-be-seen-as-doing-something UN. The UN is at the very heart of all that is wrong, ICLIE, Agenda 21, One World Government, making more and more "international Laws". These unseen, unknown, UNELECTED people are less trustworthy than sewer rats!

I suddenly want to like drones

The UN has no right to stop us from doing any of these:

testing
production
assembly
transfer
acquisition
deployment
use

If other nations wish to bend to the will of a pseudo world government, then so be it.
