    BBC News - Drone attack kills 12 in Pakistan's North Waziristan
    Is there a difference between a suicide bomber and an attack by drone?

    Yeah, it's so unfair that we have technology that saves our fighters' lives. We now need to tie our hands around our backs, because we all just know war is supposed to be fair.

    Bring back moats, boiling oil, and swords. That really should bring down the casualty count!

    :rolleyes:

    I figure those who understand the terms target and combatant have a grasp on one of the differences.

    No, then the left would complain that the casualty counts for Muslims are still too high and that we should sit head first in the sand and let them kill us. :eusa_shhh:

    Yeah because our advance in Military Technology that helps reduce the number of lives lost is Cowardly...

    With that view you could say we should fight wars naked since it's cowardly to fight the war with any sort of Protection..

    I love these drone attacks. They turn terrorists into mincemeat without risking the lives of our soldiers.

    When we finally decide to attack Pakistan properly and not via drones, I support the nuclear option. We wipe out the terrorists and not a single soldier from the alliance need die.

    We can rightly blame the collateral damage caused by nuking Pakistan on the Pakistani Terrorist Government, and they will all be dead so that won't be able to argue with us!!

    WHY WASTE A SINGLE ALLIED TROOP ON KILLING ISLAMIC TERRORISTS? THE SCUM ARE NOT WORTH IT.... DRONES AND NUKES ARE THE BEST MEANS...
