    Default 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..........

    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.

    Cheers!
