seems rather easy to decide that Drones don't kill babies ... or
at least that drones kill fewer babies than the
'alternative'


Not too easy to me...not many babies died even on 9/11. And I guess if you want to believe the US Military's story about casualty numbers and how effective its programs are, ok. I don't see that my safety will ever demand that we vaporize 12 year olds in Pakistan and force wide swaths of the world's population

To me, that just makes us the world's Ted Nugent, arguing that we need to be armed to the teeth, to the point of absurdity, in order to keep ourselves safe from the boogeymen in our paranoid fantasies. But we're worse, because so far as I know Ted Nugent isn't actually actively killing people and creating anti-American combatants.
