so lets talk Drone warfare:

In all wars, there is collateral damage. However, that doesn't make it right. That said, the Drone is actually a great tool in reducing collateral damage b/c of it's precision.

Figures in 2012 show that there has been approx 2% in civilian deaths. The total, since 2004, has been between 14-17%. That is quite low when compared to WWII and Vietnam when carpet bombing was used.

Additionally, Drone use is quite efficient. Not only does it reduce collateral damage, it allows access to remote areas that are inaccessible and/or would cost significant amount in resources and human life to go after targets.
