Of drones and encounters

A terrorism operation may sometimes go awry and end up arresting or occasionally, killing an innocent, but remember that a terrorist bomb kills only innocents. (If the person setting up the bomb dies, that is not counted)

An encounter with a terrorist suspect may go wrong and that is bad and the police will be taken to task for the mistake, but that does not offer legitimacy whatsoever for a terrorist to place bombs in crowded places and claim the lives of hundreds.

And while at it, a drone may end up killing innocent civilians, but a terrorist always kills innocent civilians.And here is a great article, via @harshgolicy

Worth a thought.
