As a self-aware Predator drone, I get my share of criticism.

"€œYou're flying lost-link again!" "€œYou vaporized a playground!" "You'€™re trying to usher in a post-human robo-dystopia!"€
Some of this is valid, some of it -- okay, most of it is valid. But sometimes, the public discourse over drones like me becomes so turgid and dramatic that it obscures reasonable discussion of my pros and cons. --Gunpowder & Lead

Your Say

What is important about the drones is how the United States government is using the drones against its own citizens. It is for our own good, and if you are not doing anything wrong why fear the government?
