      May be it would be a good stimulant for our economy also. Let's randomly drone a few buildings in America every week.

      It would help with the next job numbers.

      there are buildings to rebuild"??? This is presented as a "positive" which does not get enough focus...?

      The concern is less with the things which can be rebuilt and more with the things that can't.

      Regarding the general suggestion that there are silver linings: with the exception of complete global destruction, there tend to be opportunities after any calamity. One would imagine a Yemeni neighbor picking through the rubble of the home built by his grandfather would have preferred instead the opportunity to build at his own pace without the positive intervention of a bomb?
