Ever since I've been hearing about the drones that are constantly circling the skies over Gaza and Palestine I was wondering if our military has yet
used their preprogramed drones to carry out attacks without any human interaction. It's already completely obvious that these drones can be
autonomous or semi-autonomous because the military already uses them on preprogrammed flights taking off, doing surveillance, and then landing.
As I was thinking about this over the past weeks just this morning on CNN I noticed they posted an article talking about the new drones the
military is using especially the stealth Navy drone that looks like a mini B2 Bomber that they have and were wondering "if" and "when" these were
going to be able to be pre-programmed to identify and kill their own targets without using a pilot. The interviewer was talking to a US military
representative and the military advisor said that we were 20-30 years away from having a drone that would be able to think and act on itself to pick
out and destroy targets, as CNN was also showing scenes from the movie Terminator and Stealth. When CNN repeated that technology was 2-3 decades away
and then showed the Navy's new drone taking off and landing by itself autonomously I was just thinking to myself "YEAH RIGHT". If we can already
program our drones to take off and fly and land on preprogrammed routes, it would be simple as hell to just program that same drone to just launch a
missle at a target as well.
I couldn't believe the stupidity of this subject as they were saying one thing but contradicting it just another minute later. I couldn't find a
link to the new CNN news story but I'll just leave you guys with this older post and video:
20 to 30 years from autonomous drones that can take out their own targets my ass!
