Martha Raddatz, the chief foreign correspondent for ABC News, says:
Of course, there’s been no such uproar in the U.S. Should we be surprised? Traditionally, when a nation went to war, it had to invest its blood and treasure, but today’s joystick-wielding drone pilots can launch a missile strike from here at home, then hop in the minivan to meet the wife and kids for dinner. War couldn’t get any more impersonal.
If I’m reading this correctly, and Raddatz thinks the (supposed) impersonality of this war is lamentable, then she is literally saying that we ought to be investing more blood. That is, more soldiers ought to be dying.
This cries out for a clarification, but I can’t find one.
