For the first time in human history, it is possible to kill someone on the other side of the planet in real time by remote control. We've seen that evidence on national newscasts, reporting on the United States military's campaign against terrorism. Unmanned drone aircraft have cameras with optical, infrared and radar. Some are armed with Hellfire missiles. Sometimes they observe. Sometimes they kill. There is no question that drones in the air, and "robots" on the ground are the beginning of a major shift in how war is fought. REMOTE CONTROL WAR is a powerful documentary that explores this phenomenon, hunting down the most up-to-date information on military robotics, from Europe, to Israel and across North America.
