Drone Strikes vs Boots On The Ground

The NYT reports today that there is debate inside Obama’s administration about the decision to kill an American citizen, who is actively plotting with al Queda and/or Taliban remnants on how to attack Us interests and personnel.  Full details from the NYT here  http://nyti.ms/1jsioNz

To make my stand clear: If you are a bad guy, American citizen or not, and you are working in the battlefield of war against US interests, I’d rather a drone strike on you and anyone who happens to be next to you that day, than risk American lives tracking and eliminating you.  Welcome to war in the 21st century.
