Raucous Caucus: The Rise of the Drones

If you had reliable intelligence on the location of an Al Qaeda lieutenant in remote Pakistan, and a Hellfire-equipped drone handy, would you kill him with it?

Before you leap to a conclusion ask yourself, if the roles were reversed would he kill you?
As to the 2nd question I believe the term is "collateral damage!"

Or you could ask yourself, "What would Jesus do? I believe he said, "Do unto others before they do unto you." Or something like that.
