Drones are part of a post-heroic age.
A friend of mine noted thus in response to this article: "This is interesting in conjunction with Obama's argument that the War Powers Act does not apply in Libya. Essentially, he says since there is no major risk to American lives, it does not count as war. With that logic all future wars can be prosecuted by drones and RPV's, purely on Presidential whim."
One of these new drones will require 2,000 analysts to look at the videos it takes. So no worries - once that gets privatized that will be a hell of a lot of $11 an hour jobs.
