Here's the thing: war means people are killed, people die. It is an essential part of the enterprise. Some of those people are soldiers, and some of those people are not soldiers, and many, many people directly, tangentially, and not at all related to the war currently being fought will be killed by war. Yes, Obama's drone strikes have meant a huge uptick in people killed by drones since he became president, but this is just the latest way people die in wars—however we fight them, and whether or not we call them wars, people will be killed. It's what it's all about, even if we have figured out a way to do it at a distance.
