This is really well done. (h/t zerohedge). It shows the reported casualties of US drone strikes abroad. I can’t imagine it is very effective to aim for the top leaders and leave survivors whose hate and resistance will only grow. I think victory is attainable against any opposition if you break their will to fight. If you are unable to do that, it just drags on. Sherman understood this and famously said, “War is hell.”
Update: According this story, they are not executing drone strikes consistent with the public standards they have expressed.
