Drone strikes - what's the fuss?

The fuss over drone strikes against terrorists?  "Innocent" bystanders.  OK, so you are going to ask what they had to do with the dead terrorist?  All I'm saying is that there's a larger question, one not being asked.

The question - what happens when you allow terrorists to use your country, your neighborhood, your streets, and you, as a ploy to avoid attack?  These guys are counting on, they're absolutely depending on, those tasked with the job of removing these creeps from society on stopping cold in their pursuit when their target is in the midst of a public situation involving people on the street.

But isn't a missile strike from the air better than armies moving into the streets using tanks, artillery and other large weapons?

Isn't this a war?

From Al-Jazeera -

Well, that's what I think.
