Hate to sound militant but I think drones are destined to be one of the finest assets in Americas' arsenal. This technology will only get better with
time and having adversaries of America recognize that uncle Sam is capable of performing surgical strikes at tactical targets to end conflicts swiftly
and definitely would be a positive thing. If that makes me militant than so be it.
Ninja, please. Drone strikes are anything but surgical, which was one of the cited points in the OP. And besides, it's been well established since
WWII that extended bombing campaigns only serve to strengthen a besieged population's resolve. The sole thing that is proven to crushe resistance and
end conflict is boots on the ground-- therefore we must conclude that victory isn't the goal.
War without end, on the other hand...
Other countries will want this technology, we can reap the profits and other benefits of this program.

Uh-huh. Although the tech is getting pimped out to nation states and private entities alike, there's still plenty of hay to be made in the domestic
Remember Chris Dorner? There was talk of deploying an armed drone against him, but they settled for mere surveillance.
