Re: Hearts & minds propaganda, courtesy of MoD

my money would be on guerillas soon having drones that are "good enough" to be a real PIA

The drones might be good but those guerrillas are going to lose all their drone operators pretty fast, unless they can also afford satellites. Being able to control drones from a base well away from the theatre of operations is a huge advantage. The best guerrillas will be able to do is hide in a city, very close to a target that their enemy can't risk hitting with their overkill precision weapon.
