A Question Worth Considering

Kevin Drum in a post on drone aircraft:

It's the entire robotic revolution in warfare. When we get to the point where one side is able to conduct war effectively with virtually no fear of loss of life, does that mean that public pressure against war will start to fade away? After all, demand curves slope downward. When war becomes cheaper, we'll get more war. Right?
Sounds awfully plausible to me.

How will we tell who's winning if it's only war between robots? And what's the motivation to stop fighting?
