On Wet Work

I don't write as much on war as I used to, though its importance has not lessened.  I had a piece on BlackFive yesterday, however, which some of you may find interesting.

I read it and agreed completely. To call the drone strikes anything other than messy assassinations is bullhocky. Plus, direct action I think is more demoralizing to the enemy when you pull it off. The problem is, if you fail to pull it off, you can lose your assets. And in that equation, we've long showed a distinct preference to lose materiel over personnel.
