And look long and hard into the act of flying your B-29 in over cities, much like the one you live in yourself, before releasing the bombs in your wake

That explains why those bomber crews refused to drop nuclear weapons on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. No...wait...they actually killed hundreds of thousands of civilians.

Your second citation completely contradicts your claim-

"TBIJ reports that from June 2004 through mid-September 2012, available data indicate that drone strikes killed 2,562 - 3,325 people in Pakistan, of whom 474 - 881 were civilians, including 176 children. TBIJ reports that these strikes also injured an additional 1,228 - 1,362 individuals," according to the Stanford/NYU study.

Your first citation takes a claim from the second, that only 2% of people killed are "high value targets" and twists that into "only 2% of people killed are terrorists". That is not at all true. A rank and file ISIS member is definitely a terrorist, but not a high value target. Only management level people earn that distinction.
