Summary note:
I claim that the ‘drone problem’ is located within just war theory rather than within the act of targeted killing. I evaluate the extent to which Jeff McMahan's and Michael Walzer’s just war theories justify targeted killings and conclude by evaluating the possibility of justified targeted killings, specifically by drones.
