Bob Gates on Drones

I hate the drones. It sanitizes war, which should be bloody. Killing shouldn't be easy. But I can see that there is another side. Terrorism is an irrational reality. There are people who want to kills us. People who want us to stop using drones should ask themselves: Are you willing to put up with the occasional terrorist attack on US soil? That's the tradeoff. The drones strike before terrorists strike us at home.
