Speaking of people who could do with being blown up. Not that drones, even if they were being used with perfect intentions, could do much at all to solve this problem. About the only perspective I share, somewhat, with pro-war types, is that it's hopeless to talk about compromise with or tolerance of the Taliban. I mean, worst case scenario is that's what happens anyway, but I do think they represent a rejection of civilisation (in the normative sense) which will only be regressive, even in areas nobody would describe as particularly enlightened. Fuck those guys, in other words.
