This? This is the big problem?
"From June 2004 through midSeptember 2012, available data indicate that drone strikes killed 2,562-3,325 people in Pakistan, of whom 474-881 were civilians, including 176 children."
Let's take the midpoint and call it 3000 likely terrorists and 680 civilians who likely weren't terrorists.
That's 4.4:1 !
And 680 in *eight years*?
85 civvies per year in collateral damage??
Good God man: I think more people broke their neck slipping in the tub. In Canada. Lol
Sure, not "surgical" but check these ratios:
Most importantly the absolute numbers are beyond miniscule from a historical perspective. For civilians and combatants both.
