Back to Bad Old Days of U.S. Interference
Adrian Hamilton, The Independent
Using drones not only flies in the face of America's own principles but causes deep and abiding resentment and anger - among the communities attacked and the relations of the civilians killed. Resorting to cyber-assaults serves to induce an escalation of response which can only undermine peaceful development of the internet. Doing it in conjunction with the Israelis serves to lock Washington into a relationship of intelligence from which it will be impossible to break free.
