A rose by any other name...

So I just heard on the news this morning that we are using a new type of drone to drop bombs on suspected al-Qaida and Taliban targets in Pakistan. The old one was called the Predator.  This one is called the Reaper and the missiles it carries are called Hellfire missiles. Have we decided that our new technique to fight terrorists is to frighten them with our alarmingly named hardware?
