I just think UAVs are a useful step forward in conflict. We can now take out legitimate targets in areas or situations that would be too risky or impossible to send in men. They also prevent situations where a group of soldiers are spotted on their way, giving the targets enough warning to flee and fight another day.

Sending in a group of men may reduce the number of civilian deaths and casualties compared to a missile but the amount of targets that get away will be higher and our own troops will be put at more risk, which is an aim of war to reduce. I am all for them.
