  • "For a new generation of young guns, the experience of piloting a drone is not unlike the video games they grew up on. Unlike traditional pilots, who physically fly their payloads to a target, drone operators kill at the touch of a button, without ever leaving their base – a remove that only serves to further desensitize the taking of human life. (The military slang for a man killed by a drone strike is bug splat, since viewing the body through a grainy-green video image gives the sense of an insect being crushed."

    - Michael Hastings, The Rise of the Killer Drones: How America Goes to War in Secret, Rolling Stone magazine, 16 April 2012.
