Watch a video of a missile hitting a target, then watch the uncut version of the beheading, watch him bleed out.

Wrong. The ones standing in direct proximity (say 50 feet circle around) to the beheading are doing the happy dance singing "allis fubar" patting themselves on the back, feeling victorious and stuff.
The ones standing nearby in a drone strike are crawling about on shattered limbs and using their one remaining eye to search for their missing body parts scattered among the clumps of sizzling human flesh lying about. If they hear anything it is a loud ringing in their ears or the wails of friends and relatives bleeding out.
Just because you aren't shown the videos in the immediate aftermath of drone slaughter doesn't mean it lacks brutality.
Either way dead is dead and far worse for the living than the deceased.
The death of James Foley is tragic and thankfully his friends, family members were not present for the event causing the ripple effect of the tragedy as the loss and suffering is magnified by those left behind.
Not so good for those hanging out with a drone's target on what is supposed to be the happiest day of their lives. Not not only do they lose a loved one but also must stay on living in a maimed body or caring for those who were injured and may ultimately die months or years later from the injuries suffered.
Its the ol "hammer to a beehive" thing. You may take out a queen but you've pissed off a whole lot of... drones.... kind of ironic no?
Of course they will be a brutal as they need to be in order to defend their homeland. Would you not do the same?
The US has mauled its own citizens for less.
If anything the beheading is far more surgical, precise and less brutal than the precision bombing campaigns we've launched at an average cost of $750k a piece (for the cheap ones) +$30k per flight hour+maintenance+training. A good knife for lopping a head $15 at a military surplus store + (the promise of)70 virgins (yeah right) and you get a home movie to show your friends. Priceless.
Amazing what angry people can do with box cutters and knives.
