Because your remark is a bit untaught-full.
In your line of thinking, no soldier can ever go home or near civilians as long as the war continues.
Why? Because those drones do not tell you in front they are coming, neither are they visible before it is too late.
In your line of words, even the president (commander in chief) is hiding along civilians, and his family.
As he is at war(s), he can not be around civilians, children etc. because in your line of view he is bringing them in danger.
Why? Because you NEVER know when to expect to get hit by the remote cowards.
The thing is, with drone war, or other remote attack weapon systems, the "ethics" is with the attacker, not with the attacked.
If there would be man-to-man combat i would get your point. But with those cowardly drone attacks, the attackers are the bad guys.
