Saying Obama launched ten times more drones than Bush is like saying that the British Army relies far more on guns and bullets than it did during Agincourt. A new weapon with greater precision is available. Of course it will see increased use. Would drone critics prefer us to carpet-bomb any area suspected of hiding terrorists?

No, actually what I think they’d like is for us to have no effective way of countering terrorists. Some of them, I’m convinced, want terrorists to be able to get their way by force.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
