US Allowing Allied Countries to Buy Armed Drones

The US is going to be allowing the sales of armed drones to allied countries.

So far the UK is the only country allowed to purchase armed unmanned aircrafts. Other countries have unarmed drone air craft but not armed drones.

The countries will have to sign an agreement that they will only use the drones for military campaigns and the US will review how the country is complying.

What do you think? Should we give our allied countries armed unmanned drones?
