Good Kill (Trailer)

Wow. Take a look at this “Good Kill” (in UK theaters April 10, 2015) trailer, and if you feel like engaging some friends in discussion about the morality of the world’s #1 superpower (looking at U-S-A, U-S-A) waging wars in which its combatants are at zero risk of dying on the battlefield… do that!

A fighter-pilot turned drone-pilot, based in Las Vegas, fights the Taliban by remote control for twelve hours a day, then goes home to the suburbs and feuds with his wife and kids for the other twelve. But the pilot is starting to question the mission. Is he creating more terrorists than he’s killing? Is he fighting a war without end? One soldier’s tale with epic implications.

Just to get the debate started: Isn’t a big part of the reason we HATE war related to us not wanting to lose precious lives…on both sides? Well, how quick would one side be to war with another if the chance of their losing lives went to zero? Would the side without drone technology to allow such be more inclined to launch terror attacks on their enemy’s homefronts (where all the ‘innocent civilians’ are)? What would that mean for the homefront’s Homeland Security policies (e.g. think there’s a police state now). And back up a few more feet… do drone pilots even have to have the experience of actual combat so they have at least a little sensitivity to the horror of war? Before you answer that last one, hit the jump.
