Corrupt governments, unable to master diplomacy, strategy or governance have turned to the shortcut of the drone as the magic solution.


The Los Angeles Times reports that the fastest growing club in the world today are drone using states.
It includes, believe it not, third world countries like Nigeria. The LA Times writes, "the grainy video might appear to be another U.S. drone strike, but this was a Nigerian military crew operating a Chinese-built Rainbow drone against Boko Haram, an extremist militia allied with Islamic State, in northeastern Nigeria's remote Sambisa Forest on Feb. 2."

Your Say

Assuming there is an election come November and someone other than the blooche wins, will said blooche be keeping his fleet of killer drones?

I understand he will be keeping several hundreds of Secret Service body guards for the rest of his life. Thank you US Congress.

Terry, Congress didn't give him that perq. That crook gave it to all Presidents, so that it would include him. The next one can remove it and place it back to six years after leaving office.

It'll be something stupid like drones, won't it?

Precision weapons allow us to live in a fantsay. It's a halfway house between war and peace. "We're not at war, we're just killing that 1 terrorist right over......THERE".

Carpet bombing. When you care enough to win the damn war.
