WAR: Where's The Glory?

I love this picture of what little remains of the car carrying an Al Qaeda operative that was blasted by a CIA drone in Yemen. It looks like the Jawas' camp after it was vaporized by the stormtroopers in Star Wars. I forget now who wrote it, but it reminds me of a point one commentator made months ago - that it must be particularly dispiriting to our enemies, but is particularly just, that they be put to death in the most impersonal manner possible, preferably by some guy operating a drone from a comfortable office somewhere, making mock of their pretensions to glory.
