As discussed in the movie Clerks, the Rebel Alliance is morally ambiguous at best. When they blew up the Death Star they probably killed independent contractors and conscripts trying to put food on the table for their families.

Just to split hairs, that really only applies to the second Death Star (under construction at the time of its destruction) and not the first one (fully operational, unlikely to have many construction related contractors on board when it was destroyed).

Luke took out the first one, but it was Lando and Wedge who took out the second one, and in fact Luke himself was still on the thing when they delivered the kill shot.

So I think Hamil is on solid ground here.

Drones are robot planes, they were first used by the US during the Kosovo war and now many nations developed them on their own. Even some guerilla rebel groups have them now.

I thought Ukraine already had some of their own. Bear in mind, if another nation gives them drones, they will probably have to be programmed in computer languages used in that country, in its language and with Cyrillic script. That's how robots operate - with programming.

May the Force be with the freedom fighters of the Ukraine, and its drone robot warrior planes!
