Referring to our air power as "one-sided slaughter" is a little extreme. As for the civilians, I like munkyspunks edit. With any type of warfare you face collateral damage. Not to mention many of these innocent civilians know exactly what they're doing when they are harbor insurgents. No one gets a warm and fuzzy feeling when we find out that women and children have been caught up in an air strike, but it's nothing compared to the horrifying things these insurgents do to their own people. This article rubbed me the wrong way and frankly I have no idea what point the author was trying to make. Had it focused on the changing dynamic of air warfare from fighter jets to drones using actual facts rather than rhetoric and unsupported anecdotes painting the US military as a school yard bully of terminator proportions, then maybe I could have gotten behind it.
