  •  The US was attacked September 11, 2012 (0+ / 0-)

    If we can show that attack was because of drones we are likely to prevail. But if it was a non drone related terrorist attack we still have to answer the question. It will not help to ignore the fact that there are still terrorists who hate the US and want to harm it.  Showing that drones add to instead of solve the problem would be good. Ignoring the problem ensures failure.

        the anit-US feelings that lead to terrorist attacks.  I think drones contribute to those feelings.  Whether not using drones would stop terrorism is a different question.  One problem we have is terrorism.  If drones add to the likelihood of terrorist acts against the US then surely we should do everything we can to stop them.  Ignoring the contribution of drones to the the negative feelings toward the US is done at our own peril.  But the hatred preceeds drones.  Some of the hatred is cultural and we probably aren't going to be able to do anything about that.
