I don't post this to point out Obama, but to ask about the nature and possible effieciencies of drones. You know, in a Hurlburtian, Wilsonian kind of way.
Why don't you expound on the benefits or shortcomings of drones, in a you know, Lookian, Concern Trollian kind of way? Do enlighten us.

ETA: So you're asking a pacifist to assess the value of drone warfare? Have I got that correct?
An elementary answer, even if one isn't a champion of military aggression, is that drones --being unmanned-- reduce the casualties of the combatant. Whether that is in our best interest or justified as defense against terror is a whole 'nother kettle of fish. Que,no?
