Drones - Who Decides Who and When They Kill?

Drones have changed the face of war. Is that good or bad? Who's responsible for what they do? If it's murder, who is guilty of the sin? There are estimates that the autonomous killing drone is only 8 years away. Should we talk about it now or just ignore it?
