This is the full version of the movie I referenced in Radio Contra Episode 75. Not a film made for enjoyment, it explores the very real moral question of killing by way of drones. Amid the Biden Administration’s repeated use of the ‘over the horizon’ buzz phrase, the over-use of extra-judicial killings with little if any political blowback makes for an attractive option for a spineless political class.
But there are consequences, and severe ones.
Killing in this manner is not simply immoral, but unforgivably dishonorable.
A political leader which relies upon such weapons, seeking only to dehumanize the the very real human cost of war while allowing one’s own decadent nation to rot from within, is no leader at all.
