"Outgoing Defense Secretary Leon Panetta announced this week a new medal for desk-bound warriors who control killer robots responsible for the deaths of thousands in South Asia, North Africa and the Middle East.

The Distinguished Warfare Medal will recognize drone pilots for their "extraordinary achievements that directly impact on combat operations, but do not involve acts of valor or physical risks that combat entails."*

This is an effort to elevate the low lifes that play video games and kill innocent bystanders. They want to make this mos a prestigious position so that they can recruit thousands more to help cover the US.

This will outrank a Bronze Star with Valor device. All from the air conditioned safety of Las Vegas! How about signing the whitehouse petition?

It should read something like: "Bravery while out of range"
