ART OF THE DRONE


This graphic journalism editorial by Alan Clark from 2013 illustrates for the reader the process of drone strikes—at that time an alarming new trend in warfare just exploding onto the public consciousness—as well as the common problem of so-called “collateral damage,” or innocent civilians being killed by such strikes, sometimes because of their proximity to legitimate targets, and sometimes for no legitimate reason whatsoever. The piece also calls the reader’s attention to the moral implications of such technological warfare, invoking the notion of a faceless, coldly murderous military superpower.
