Eielson commander to sign copies of new book on moral implications of robotic warfare
FAIRBANKS - "There was a time when American use of force was done out of deep reluctance," says a new book on the rise of remote-controlled military aircraft. "It was, for a time, the national ethic on the resort to war, but reluctance seems to have slipped over the past decades. Our nation as a whole is now immune to the effects of war."
The book is "Killing Without Heart: Limits on Robotic Warfare in an Age of Persistent Conflict."
The author is M. Shane Riza, a veteran F-16 pilot who is to conclude his tour in early July as commander of the 354th Operations Group at Eielson Air Force Base..........

Reason: Added Military Biography
If he has his head that far up his ass I can see why he is leaving early.
Hmmmm . . . it appears he is leaving his Group Command on time, almost exactly two years after he assumed command. This is a normal timeline for group command in the USAF. Also, I encourage you to run a Google search on this guy, and take in some of his readings. Thought provoking stuff from a seemingly intelligent and articulate officer.
