Drones are instruments of war.

"A drone is a high-tech version of an old army and a musket. It ought to be used in Somalia to hunt bad guys but not in America. I don't want to see it hovering over anybody's home. Yes, you can say we have satellites, we've got Google Street View and London has a camera on every street corner but that's not an excuse to cave in on everything else and accept a society where you're always under -- being watched by the government. This is not what we want," Krauthammer said on the panel portion of FOX News' "Special Report."

"I would say the price of liberty. You can hear a helicopter, you can't hear a drone. You know, if you hear a helicopter you hide under a bush. Well, you can't with this which is why it's effective in Pakistan and elsewhere. It's deft and it's silent. I don't think we want a society where if there are the objects, hovering over streaming, real-time information about you, your family, your car, your location," Krauthammer said later in the segment.

That's funny because just a few years ago, Krauthammer was one of the most rabid pro-War, pro-Police State, pro-Let's-Torture-Everyone, and pro-Global-War-on-Terror fanatical writers out there. He's so pro-Zionist even they can't stand him. Gee, maybe he's starting to wake up to the Pandora's Box he and the other Neocon shills like him helped usher in? Guess he was okay with it so long as we were doing it to the other countries.

I think drones are a tipping point in public opinion and many people are waking up and saying no, this is just too far especially over my house.
I'm really heartened to see this and I feel positive it's a trend that will only increase the more they try to push this crap on us.
Finally there is an issue that both right and left can agree on !

It's not just the concept of a camera in the sky that can see everything you do -
It's the idea of someone holding on gun on you 24/7 - effectively making us all hostages.

I wonder how the american sheeple would think if the drones were called what they truly are 'Airborn T1's.
