I don't. I don't see why using a smart drone armed with one small bomb   to
target one specific room in one specific building is less moral than using
thousands of large dumb bombs to carpet bomb an entire city. Suppose in
1945 instead of dropping 20,000 large dumb bombs on Dresden and killing at
least 25,000 people they had instead dropped 10 very small smart bombs on
Berlin and killed just 10 people, but those 10 people included Hitler and
his top 9 cronies. Which action would be more moral?
