In Response to: Warfare under the radar

This article raises important issues, but one can argue that most wars have been questionably justified. We think of Lincoln as one of our greatest presidents, but were the Civil War goals achievable only with the sacrifice of 600,000 Americans? Was the Vietnam War justified and “legal” based on the Gulf of Tonkin resolution? Yes, unmanned weapons are new, but questionable intervention is as old as our species.
