Drone Assassination Killing: Immaculate, Righteous & Ritualistic

The translation of Mozart's "Cosi Fan Tutti" comic opera title says " Everyone is doing it".

The defense of United States drone assassination is that it's saving many lives by killing a few lives. To hear  advocates, drone assassinations approach gods own judgement and execution.. It's immaculate. It's ritualistic. It's righteous. And its cost effective. How can one argue against a god like approach to killing? In the tradition of a long history of celebrated assassins, which include Brutus, John Wilkes Booth, Lee Harvey Oswald, James Earl Ray, Sirhan Sirhan and the many suicide bombers past, present and in the future, you are honored by the highest form of praise ---imitation.

If drones were around in Cole Porters day, he would have included a reference in " You're The Top".
