3. I'm not sure where you stand on the drone issue, but...

...if you make collateral damage issue number one, the "surgical strike" possibilities for drones may actually be a selling point - if not now, then down the road as technology improves. Boots on the ground in Pakistan for instance would likely encounter resistance that isn't there to targeted drone strikes, thus increasing the number of deaths. To me, as one who contemplates the future though, the ramifications of moving toward mechanised remote controlled warfare are bigger than a measure of its accuracy in hitting the people we were aiming for.
