According to The Guardian, the four men who stepped forward have more than 20 years of direct experience of lethal drone programs and “were credited with having assisted in the targeted killings of hundreds of people in conflict zones.”

“Ever step on ants and never give it another thought? That’s what you are made to think of the targets — as just black blobs on a screen. You start to do these psychological gymnastics to make it easier to do what you have to do — they deserved it, they chose their side,” Michael Haas told The Guardian. “You had to kill part of your conscience to keep doing your job every day — and ignore those voices telling you this wasn’t right.”

The men revealed that drone operators refer to children as “fun-sized terrorists” and likened killing them to “cutting the grass before it grows too long.”

As the US government pushes us further into war, we might want to listen to these words from the people who have done the fighting.
