Are Drone Strikes Cowardly?

To ask the question is to know the answer.

From William J. Astore, a retired lieutenant colonel (USAF):

“America likes to fancy itself the ‘home of the brave,’ a land of ‘heroes’ and ‘warriors.’ But how heroic is it to launch a Hellfire missile from a drone, without any risk to yourself?  Aren’t warriors supposed to be on the receiving end of elemental violence as well as being the inflictors of it?”
