    "signature strike drone 'pilots'" are by definition war criminals.

    They are blowing up people whose identities they don't know, who are not identified as enemy soldiers by any objective means, who are not identified as non-state enemy combatants, who are often civilians and/or surrounded by civilians. They are often blowing up funerals or family gatherings or weddings - again, groups of civilians in every sense of the word: men, women and children.

    Those are war crimes. End of story.
