But are we a civilised society, Your Worship?

Passing sentence on rioters, Judge Alan Berg said that “no civilised society should be expected to put up with it.” 

Does that help us to understand the agreement to bomb civilians in Afghanistan, Pakistan and other countries? Are they considered uncivilised and – as such – expected to put up with lethal violence? 

Can countries like ours – complicit in drone attacks – be considered civilised?
