I feel unprepared to form my own opinion on the drone strikes in Pakistan. Even if I had read the entire 182-page report I would still know less than the people who wrote it. For me to boldly state my opinion with any sort of confidence I would need to go to Pakistan and do my own research, to be sure of the truth of the current situation. I would talk to U.S. soldiers and Pakistani citizens to hear both sides. Once I was sure of the current situation, I could focus on predicting the future. I would need to educate myself about war strategies and what has worked and not worked in the past. I would have to hear all of the latest research about fatality projections and terrorist member growth projections and other relevant predictions. Even after I knew all this I would still seek the input of others to help me come to a decision. After seeing what currently was happening and what was likely to happen in the future if various paths were taken, I could begin to wrestle with the morality of the situation. If one innocent civilian dies, how many terrorists must also be killed for their loss of life to be “worth it”? Should anyone ever get to choose to sacrifice someone else’s life for the greater good? After all my hypothetical research and discussion, I would never be able to answer that question.
