Separating Fact from Fiction in the Debate over Drone Proliferation
Claims that drones will soon remake warfare or international politics are unwarranted.

Drones will rarely be “winning weapons,” because they are vulnerable to air defenses. States will, however, continue to use drones against terrorists and domestic opponents.
