You make a valid point about the potential dangers of oversimplifying complex policy issues by relying too heavily on drone technology. Indeed, history has shown that “cruise missile diplomacy” and similar approaches may not always achieve the intended results and could even have unintended consequences, as you pointed out with the Clinton administration’s actions in the 1990s. While drones can undoubtedly offer advantages in modern warfare, their utilization should be approached with caution and strategic foresight.
