Covering the Frontlines of the Drone War

  • One thing I'd want to note is that I find the use of the term 'drone war' in regards to the american airstrikes in Yemen a bit problematic. Strikes by (american, yemeni and saudi) manned aircraft are also taking place; the most notorious strikes in terms of civilian casualties, a Dec 17th american missile strike on a village called Majalla in south Yemen, was launched by sea.
