What might the maxim of the use of drones in targeted killings? Could this be willed to be a universal law? Why or why not?

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

The George W. Bramble and Obama organizations have tried to legitimize focused on killings under both local and worldwide law. The local lawful supporting for U.S. counterterrorism operations and the focused on slaughtering of individuals from the Taliban and al-Qaeda and its offshoots over the globe is the 2001 Authorization for the Use of Military Force (AUMF), which the U.S. Congress passed days after 9/11. The statute enables the president "to utilize all essential and proper power" in quest for those in charge of the terrorist assaults. Peacetime deaths, which are infrequently conflated with focused on killings, have been authoritatively banned by the United States subsequent to 1976. On ethical grounds it is hard to accept that target killing shoudl be legalized. the world should understand the importance of lives instead of treating them as a citizen of a cuntry only.
