most of the drone strikes armies authorize do not have reported civilians at the time of authorization. most drone collateral is caused by bad/incomplete communication between recon teams, drone operators, ordinance operators and the people above them in rank that authorize the attack.

leaders are in a unique position where they have the power to change the world but must also take responsibility for how it changes. however, presidents aren't the only people in an army with that power. even someone like putin, who most of the world hates right now, isn't directly responsible for the artillery strikes that killed civilians. the direct responsibility falls on the ground and air crews that misidentified civilians as military targets. someone like him is indirectly responsible for authorizing and publicizing the war, but war is war and once it's started it goes sideways fast. ground units get hit by accurate fire, call artillery assistance on the position they think they're taking fire from. these positions range over several km until they narrow their targets and score an accurate hit. civilians hiding in their homes, operating vehicles or carrying long items that can be misidentified as weapons tend to be killed before anyone even realizes they are civilians. these tough decisions become even tougher during asymmetrical warfare, as anyone driving a car or even walking could carry an IED or report your position to enemies.

obama authorized the use of thousands of hellfire missiles during the waning days of the war on terror. most of these quarter million dollar missiles were good hits on enemy armor and infantry. a few of them were bad hits on civilians, and at least three were friendly fire hits on US ground vehicles. he can't be directly responsible for the mistakes of ground crew with hundreds of ranks of separation between them, nor the gunner who launched the missile on bad information reported over their comms. however, these kinds of mistakes should be planned for and targets properly investigated before the strikes. leaving ground units to take fire and report incorrect coordinates under this intense fire is very irresponsible.
I wrote soPhysician Prescribed Desoxyning long without holes a couple days ago but it logged me out when I tried to post it. RQed. maybe I'll dump the sources I linked

tldr of the main point-- if your government is showing a clear interest in the outcome of a foreign war, and your first response ISN'T to do some rigorous and intellectually honest investigation as to whether your government played a role in starting that war, then there's soPhysician Prescribed Desoxyning wrong with your mind. soPhysician Prescribed Desoxyning called a "war on terror" should elicit hysterical laughter if you have any critical thinking abilities

most "blue cities" are just a mafia municipality of dems with big mouths whose only policy decisions are a direct result of the massive corporate lobby. hence "law and order" types. theres a reason that the most unanimous and swift decisions are bulldozing homeless encampments out of business areas

i spend a lot of time in dc and theres really no better example. of course you should hold the party responsible for this but people love to act like "blue cities" failing reflects some cultural marxist agenda, or even just the stated neoliberal platform of the dnc, instead of simple mafia activity. gun control in particular in these cities is horribly executed because the intent is to criminalize and sustain poverty, the city is incentivized to sustain violence
