“Targeting individuals who pose an imminent threat to the US is a lawful exercise of self-defense. But the current US targeted killing program – using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs, or drones) to strike terrorist operatives wherever we find them – raises a big red flag.
This is not simply because the policy uses UAVs – remotely piloted combat aircraft are not inherently unlawful. Nor simply because of civilian deaths: although horrible and tragic, not all civilian deaths from military operations are unlawful. Nor simply because most strikes are in countries with whom we are not at war: states have a right to act in self-defense to protect their national security, even outside of armed conflict. Nor is it simply because intelligence personnel carry out many of the strikes: nothing in international law mandates that only military personnel can engage in combat.” Source: guardian.co.uk
