North Dakota law review, Vol. 85, no. 3, 2009, p. 649-671
This article examines the permissibility of armed unmanned aerial systems (UAS) strikes through two normative constructs: jus ad bellum, the law governing resorting to force, and jus in bello, the law governing the actual conduct of a UAS strike. How one characterizes the conflict in Pakistan, internally and via the United States, and whether Pakistan has consented to the strikes, trigger different analytical frameworks, but this article asserts the conclusion is the same - that the UAS strikes are lawful.
