• No, it is just another way to get to the enemy. We no longer have to meet in single combat to kill our enemies. We no longer have to deal with invasions and armies fighting each other either, unless we want to occupy their lands. Send a drone, kill the target with little to no "collateral damage" and save lives. IMHO.
  • That's like saying to the first person who threw a spear, "Don't you think spear attacks are cowardice? the first person who used a sling. To the first person who used a bow and arrow. To the first person who used a crossbow. To the first person who used a rifle. Etc. You get the idea. It's not cowardice. It's technology that provides the possesser with more ability to attack the desired target...from a greater distance, and/or granting some other military advantage(s).

      Would you shoot someone in the back? Or King hit them when they aren't lookiong?
      I don't know what "king hit" means. If my life or the life of my fellows depended on it I would shoot someone in the back. Otherwise: no.

      A king hit would be to Hit someone in the head when they aren't looking or hit them in the back of the head.

      That is known as a "Sunday punch" in US slang.
  • all war is bad/sad ,but so is a terrorist attack that normally kills many innocent people ..drone gets the main one they want ,saving heaps of lives
  • The object of fighting a war is to win. Other than humanitarian rules (like the Geneva Conventions), opponents generally use whatever weapons are at their disposal. "Cowardice"? Drone attacks are no more "cowardice" than dropping atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki from an altitude of 30,000 feet. They couldn't face their enemy, either.
  • Drones have the same effect as a guided missile with a smaller payload.

      Too gutless to face the enermy no different to a terrorist attack.

      So, should Joe Biden have challenged alZawahri to a fist fight?
