Welcome To The World Of Robot Death Planes

Tom Tomorrow's stock boy and girl characters engage Droney, the anthropomorphic killer drone, in s colloquy about an earlier strike in Pakistan that took out two (one U.S. and one Italian) hostages held by al-Qaeda. The airborne robotic friendly fire has prompted a scarce murmur from the commentariat: "-$hit-Stuff happens is the prevailing sentiment. At the end of the exchange, Droney flies away unscathed by the back-and-forth. If this is (fair & balanced) amorality, so be it.
