Butchery by Remote Control


At least in previous struggles, the guys flying the killing machines had a chance of having to pay for their deeds. Ask John McCain.

But this sterile kind of slaughter is a dreadful development, in no small part because it invites revenge missions inside the CONUS by the relatives--political, spiritual, or physical--of the murdered victims, since it is only here that the "pilots" can be found and held responsible.

And if they get a few of us--or a few hundred--in the process, we have a word for that: Collateral damage. Payback's a bitch, innit?
