New Zealand and Australia were drawn into the global debate on drone strikes Wednesday after confirming that a citizen from each country had been killed in U.S. strikes in Yemen.

New Zealand Prime Minister John Key said the men were killed along with three known Al-Qaeda operatives during a drone strike in November. The New Zealander had attended a rebel training camp and was under surveillance by intelligence agencies, Key said.

He added that drone strikes by the United States were justified in some circumstances.

"I think they are legitimate, at certain times, where countries are trying to contend with very dangerous situations and they are trying to deal with those terrorists without putting their own people in harm's way," he said.

Key said he thought the November strike was such a justified occasion: "I suspect so, yes, given that three of the people killed were well-known Al-Qaeda operatives." . . .

I have absolutely no sympathy for terrorists regardless of their motives. I even understood Ted Kazinskys motives but didn't support his techniques. I have no idea how to combat crazy religious people who hide amongst civilians and attack innocents. I really don't think that armies or courts are going to be the answer. Since drones seem to be like cutting the head off a Hydra that's not working either. At first I thought that drones were a logical weapon, not creating as many deaths on either side as armies and nearly surgical in effect compared to armed invasion. The only thing that I think would work is for EVERY religious leader and all their followers to condemn violence as loudly as they can. I don't see that happening and I can't see anything but more violence against innocents in the future. I wish there was a glimmer of a chance to see a good ending, but I don't.

In this particular case, based solely on what was posted here in this thread, I agree that it was a good, prudent and justified use of drones.

IF, it turns out that there were also innocent people killed and/or injured, my opinion is subject to change.

Anyone can call themselves "innocent."
