    Is using drones somehow "worse" than using manned planes or maneuver battalions?
    The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected.

    "Two influential human rights groups say they have freshly documented dozens of civilian deaths in U.S. drone strikes in Pakistan and Yemen, contradicting assertions by the Obama administration that such casualties are rare.

    In Yemen, Human Rights Watch investigated six selected airstrikes since 2009 and concluded that at least 57 of the 82 people killed were civilians, including a pregnant woman and three children who perished in a September 2012 attack. "


    Is it time to stop the drone attacks?
    We care about not killing civilians? Remember it's terrorism when you strap a bomb to yourself and blow up civilian areas, not when you drop bombs from sophisticated weapon platforms.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Since Terrorist don't meet the legal definition of a Combatant, they are all civilians.

    As to the rest, if you are hanging around with know terrorist and a drone drops a bomb on him while you are nearby, oh, should of found better friends to handout with.

    It's funny how Democrats accept "drone strike" as a politically correct way to say "assassinate".

    I like the drone attacks except I fear the day when terrorists get the technology and use it on us.

    When that day comes, Just don't hang around with those who the drones are attacking. And don't live in the same town. And don't eat in the same restaurant. And don't shop in the same mall. Don't drive on the same road either

    That was your solution wasn't it?
