Death at a distance

Pistols, rifles, shotguns, mortars, artillery, gunships, rockets and RPG's, big gun volleys from ships at sea

Napalm, white phosphorus, nuclear payloads dropped from on high. Man-made death falling down from the sky

Armed drones killing by remote control. A-bombs, intercontinental ballistic missiles whistle as they deliver

Clusters of destruction from the sky. Civilian deaths at a distance. Never an Honorable way to die
