That number of people could easily fit into a standard size bus
(although lower-status al-Qaeda members would have to stand).
Kind of makes you wonder why we have so many troops over there.
And when one dies, another takes his place. And it will go on that way forever.
They ride in separate buses, increasing the number of drones required. But what about the other passengers?
Just like the Nazis at the end of World War II. Kill one, another spawns in his place. That's why we are still fighting them to this day.

Don't be a dumbass. The war against the Nazis was a war against a state, Germany. It wasn't all that hard to distinguish Germany soldiers in, say, Poland, from Soviet soldiers or Polish underground fighters.
Not exactly parallel to the situation in Afghanistan or whatever.
