About those "precision" weapons....

Yeah.......Well.....Yeah....That. See, the thing is, they aren't all that precise, as it turns out. And there's a little problem that the folks who make them and the folks who order their use seem to want ignored: if you use these weapons where there are a lot of civilians, a lot of civilians get killed. Yeah, I know, there's this whole bit about "terrorists" and whatnot. But look, no one wants their generally quiet neighborhood wrecked by imprecise "precision" weapons.

Just so we're clear: These weapons are not at all precises, no matter how they are billed, and no matter how much hopeyness is used in their billing. A lot of folks are aware of this inconvenient fact, too.
