Yep, I know that. The technology interests me so I am read up on it. But a guy on relay from 3,000 to 10,000 K's away is not a direct human in the
loop as compared to a pilot on board the aircraft.
My concern is that we are eagerly heading towards a real world where machines independantly do the warring on humans and other machines, etc. Machines
already in service are capable of submitting their own flight plans before take-off, are quite able to scan possible targets and decide which are
"enemy". At the moment these machines have a human to tell them "Fire", yet the technology on board is capable of following a set of orders including
"Fire" when the targets are designated "enemy".
That is my concern, and the fact that we are happily running to reach this level of Machine Independance.
