Kurzbeschreibung

Dezember 2012
Drone Warfare is the first comprehensive analysis of one of the fastest growing—and most secretive—fronts in global conflict: the rise of robot warfare. In 2000, the Pentagon had fewer than fifty aerial drones; ten years later, it had a fleet of nearly 7,500, and the US Air Force now trains more drone “pilots” than bomber and fighter pilots combined. Drones are already a $5 billion business in the US alone. The human cost? Drone strikes have killed more than 200 children alone in Pakistan and Yemen.

CODEPINK and Global Exchange cofounder Medea Benjamin provides the first extensive analysis of who is producing the drones, where they are being used, who controls these unmanned planes, and what are the legal and moral implications of their use. In vivid, readable style, this book also looks at what activists, lawyers, and scientists across the globe are doing to ground these weapons. Benjamin argues that the assassinations we are carrying out from the air will come back to haunt us when others start doing the same thing—to us.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Gut recherchiert - mit wenigen Abstrichen 19. Juli 2013
Von Honeybal Lektor TOP 100 REZENSENT
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Insgesamt ist das Buch der Autorin sehr interessant und gut recherchiert. Sie schildert darin sehr gut wo Drohnen mittlerweile überall zum Einsatz kommen, sowohl im militärischen, als auch im zivilen Bereich und beleuchtet ihr Leistungspotential. Natürlich liegt ihr Hauptaugenmerk aufgrund des Themas vor allem auf dem militärischen Bereich und den massiven Einsatz von Kampfdrohnen durch die USA, aber auch Israel. Ebenso geht sie darauf ein, welche Länder ebenso in der Drohnenentwicklung tätig sind. Ebenso werden die Hersteller von Drohnen und die dazugehörige Lobby dokumentiert.
Sie schildert den Alltag und die Probleme von Kampfdrohnenpiloten sowie auch die Schicksale von Zivilisten, die Opfer von Drohnenangriffen wurden. Im Anschluss beleuchtet sie die Widerstands- und Protestbewegungen, die gegen den Einsatz von Kampfdrohnen in den USA, Europa und weltweit entstanden sind. Eine Schlussbetrachtung rundet die wirklich gelungene Gesamtschau zu dieser Thematik ab.
Jedoch weist dass Buch auch einzelne Fehler auf. Der Name einer Propaganda-Zeitschrift von Al Qaida ist falsch angegeben sowie mehrere Rechen- und Zahlenbeispiele nicht komplett logisch zu Ende gedacht. Zudem ist ihre Fundamentalkritik an Drohnen so breit gefächert artikuliert, dass ihre Kritikpunkte wie Kosten, fehlende Treffergenauigkeit, falsche Informationen über Ziele auch auf bemannte Kampfflugzeuge sowie fast jedes weitere Waffensystem übertragen werden können. Das Thema das Buches ist jedoch nicht die Grundsatzfrage nach der Berechtigung und Führbarkeit von Kriegen etc. sondern speziell die Drohnenkriegsführung und deshalb sollten die Argumente auch speziell zur Thematik passen.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Agenda driven 15. April 2014
Von William M Cerat - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I was hoping for a book that was simply factual and spoke with in depth knowledge about this newly developing field/weapon. While I appreciate the human elements to the authors arguments, I felt she relied to heavily on emotional appeal from the reader to make her point, than on solid facts. I happen to know a great deal on this topic and was not impressed by the many factual mistakes made. These mistakes lead me to question the authors credibility in the few areas brought up, that I had not previously been aware of. With that said, I wouldn't recommend the book. It is a mix of accurate and inaccurate information driven by agenda. I'm not arguing for or against the authors position with relation to the growing field of unmanned aviation, I simply don't think this is the best source for you to look to if you are truly interested in gaining an understanding of this newly developed field/weapon.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A 'Must-Read' 14. Mai 2012
Von John S. Uebersax - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This new book by leading American anti-drone activist and CODEPINK co-founder Medea Benjamin is a must-read for anyone interested in the bitter reality of the ongoing US drone wars. It will be of interest to researchers, journalists, activists, ethicists, legal analysts, and the general public.

Any initial fears that this is merely a sensationalistic, superficial analysis of the problems of drone warfare quickly vanish as one begins reading. With over 300 notes and citations, the book supplies an unparalleled, sweeping perspective on the entire problem, alluding, in one way or another, to all the main issues. It contains a lot of details about drones that probably hadn't occurred to you before. (For example, did you know that drone-launched Hellfire missiles travel faster than the speed of sound? A strike victim doesn't even hear them coming.)

Overall it's an excellent, and perhaps essential starting point for research on US drone warfare.

The style is extremely readable, without loss of depth or impact. Medea Benjamin has an amazing command of the facts, a consequence of her sheer passion and commitment to the topic. There is no political agenda here -- it is not marred by 'leftist' or 'rightist' prejudice. Rather, what comes across is an intense humanitarian motivation. She is writing from the heart, with pure and trustworthy instincts, accompanied by a high degree of intellectual and journalistic skill.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Big Brother Wants To Party and He's Right Outside Your Bedroom Window 28. April 2012
Von cvairag - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Of the many horrors unleashed under the rubric of national security, perhaps none is as immediately and intimately threatening, or as revealing of the mindset of the 1% and their politically sympathetic camp-followers,as the radical expansion of drone warfare over the past decade, especially by the Obama administration. At least hundreds of innocent civilian lives have been lost, mutilated, or destroyed in military operations where bombs are dropped by robotically-manned aircraft, launched and directed to remote targets, by play-stations operated by U.S. military personnel, often former computer "gamers" from U.S. air bases situated halfway around the world from their victims.
In this immaculately documented study, an inimitable, true heavyweight, long-term critic of U.S. social policies (I hesitate to use the word "foreign" here), details the dreadful history of what is now the norm, the cutting-edge, if you'll have it, of U.S. military strategy and speculates on its future.
This last part ought to be of particular interest to the general reader: how drones are currently either in use or planned imminently to be in use by domestic security operatives and local law enforcement agencies for domestic survellience on - well - you've got it - the old enemy - the enemy within - the ones who are mentioned in the opening lines of the Constitution! And plans are in the works for not only survellience...
Our eyes our opened to the danger of drone proliferation: there are currently over 400 outstanding orders to be filled, and not only from U.S. military clients!
Not only is the extent of drone damage documented here - but the criminal insensitivity of such killings - where often the identity targets, and the actual degree of the victims' culpability remains unknown. This concept has been expanded by the Signature Kill type operations discussed in a book that is incumbent upon every American concerned about personal survival to actually take time out to read.

1.0 von 5 Sternen An insult to ones intellect 17. März 2014
Von Justin Melman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
The first thought I had about this book is that Benjamin would find something to get angry about if there was nothing to be angry with in the first place.

I am in the drone industry and Law-Enforcement as well as a former member of the armed forces. Benjamin does not touch on the 'good' work drones and their operators do on a daily basis like finding people trapped under rubble, Anti-Rhino poaching or finding lost vessels at sea etc. without putting people in harms way. Let alone the mediocre work done by drones to search for burst gas pipes and plumbing in apartment blocks or even aerial site surveys. Instead, 'the world' has to just shut it all down and halt any advance in the human races knowledge in this industry.

This book is completely one-sided, highly contradictory, overly emotional and according to what's written, if Benjamin had her way, no nation or peoples sovereignty or traditions would be sacred. All I can really deduce from this book and Benjamin's ideologies is that in order to solve the unemployment caused by shutting down the drone industry, more people should to be sent to their deaths... and then she'd go on to protest against all the killing of those who are killing her countrymen.

I further cannot respect a persons views if they profess that one peoples sovereignty is not worth as much as another. And I certainly refuse to accept or support anyone who doesn't recognize that everyone has an equal right to life. Benjamin's attempt to justify beheading human beings is just savage.

I've been there, done that, gotten too many t-shirts and know what the real world looks like. I'll be kind and call this abortion of words and waste of paper pure drivel.
3.0 von 5 Sternen Unfocused and kind of messy, but it still offers some very valuable insight into how we fight armed conflicts at this moment. 28. März 2014
Von jafrank - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
It's not the most polished or focused book imaginable, but Benjamin is first and foremost a peace activist, not an investigative journalist. To her credit, the parts of the book that focus on Drone warfare: how it developed, how much money is involved in their production (hint: it's A LOT), how they are used, and the basic ethical/legal dilemmas involved in secretively killing people from the sky thousands of miles away receive a marginally thoughtful summary, and she obviously put a lot of research (though nowhere near enough to make this book as powerful as it could be) into the topic.

Honestly, this is a subject which just needs a stronger, more disciplined writer, one who is able to focus in persistently on the ramifications of these machines, and not someone who will hijack their own work with hopelessly naive, 3rd rate reasoning about "just-war theory" and the embarrassingly negligible role that the U.S.'s already hopelessly emasculated peace movement has played in bringing more attention to how totally insane and terrifying the implications of drone warfare are.
