    drones change the nature of war—they r now widely used by Russia, China, US, Israel, Turkey, Iran, etc…they have limitations. In the bombing of Serbia by the amerikans, the Serbs created cardboard facsimiles of tanks, painted them and adorned them with metal foil…the amerikans believed that cardboard was a tank. their military vehicles were concealed in farms, etc and used only in combat….the amerikans destroyed nearly none….frustrated, they destroyed the Chinese embassy murdering 3 Chinese diplomats—amerikan “smart” bombs on display

      That’s very interesting, we as well tend to not consider the economics of war and the implication of using such expensive projectiles against hoax targets. My personal opinion is if you can’t make war worth it for your economy you are ultimately depriving your population from some welfare which ultimately leads to reduction of your budget for future campaigns.
