Nemški obrambni minister Thomas de MaiziÃ¨re brani načrte za nakup bojnih brezpilotnih letal v Nemčiji.
Der Spiegel, ki nasprotuje načrtom, poroča:
"In civilised states which respect even the dignity of their enemies, criminals are arrested rather than shot before trial. … Officers who work with such weapons are not fighting enemies called North Korea or Somalia, the enemy is here is called Osama Bin Laden or Herr MÃ¼ller. The hunt for Herr MÃ¼ller is no longer confined to the battlefields, Citizen MÃ¼ller can’t feel safe anywhere in the world; a remote-control drone operated by German army officers will find him and if necessary liquidate him as a preventive measure. And it can’t even be ruled out that one of MaiziÃ¨re’s new killing machines won’t execute the suspected terrorist on his own doorstep. … In this era of modern warfare the constitution’s old guarantee of respect for human dignity no longer seems inviolable."
