The day that robot armies become more cost-effective than human infantry is the day when People Power becomes obsolete. With robot armies, the few will be able to do whatever they want to the many. And unlike the tyrannies of Stalin and Mao, robot-enforced tyranny will be robust to shifts in popular opinion. The rabble may think whatever they please, but the Robot Lords will have the guns.

We can handle the issue JUST fine ,airforce bases have cops that aren't all SWAT teams it wouldn't be hard to overrun then and kill the drone command,NOT TO Mention ,HOW many drone pilots would give up an American future? ALL the nifty freedoms we now have for what? Some Hitler retread ?
THAT is the downfall of any government attack on us,WE DON'T LIKE BEAUROCRACIES here we HATE them,why in the hell would we BACK the same people who make our lives MISERABLE?
There are WAY too many people scattered over a larger area than lil ol ENGLAND . if they can't kill or control us all fast ,it's over.
