Five years ago the suggestion that within a decade drone strikes would be taking place on a regular basis in multiple countries with little notice by the mainstream media or the general public seemed far-fetched to many. Today, with drone strikes being undertaken in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, Iraq and Syria, and no doubt Libya again too soon (and not to forget the regular sporadic bursts of Israeli strikes in Gaza) such a prediction looks a lot more likely, if not a certainty.
Hosted by the Iona Community and Fellowship of Reconciliation Scotland, Chris Cole, coordinator of the advocacy and information organisation, Drone Wars UK, is currently on a short Scottish tour, coinciding with Christian Aid Week and the start of the Church of Scotland General Assembly.
