    Drones are a wonderful weapon of war. With them
    and the presumed spies on the ground, we are
    able to do a significant amount of damage to
    a diffuse and invisible enemy. Snipers are a
    wonderful tool of war in such a situation, but
    overall drones are better. Artillery, especially
    artillery with smart rounds would be an excellent
    weapon in such circumstances, but drones are
    better.

    Drones came on the scene just in time for this
    kind of war. With them and the associated spies
    on the ground, we have the upper hand at little
    cost to ourself. We would be fools to give up
    this advantage.
