That is a useful list of survival tips. Drone-dodging isn't just for AQ, but for anybody having to cope with an attacking force that hides behind
flying machines. The attacking force could be any country or any body. I think that the list is short sighted though, like using dummies in mock
meetings. Drones have heat-sensor technology, don't they?
This list comes from the source the Associated Press. Conspiracy theory: these are dummy tips. Maybe a sales pitch for Russian-made "sky grabber."
Only about $3,000? I want two of them.
Now when there is the war of man vs machine, even though, in this instance, my country is on the side of the machine, I sort am for the human,
politics aside, that they can beat up the machine any way they can, because there is nobody inside to lose that would present a moral dilemma.
Somehow it feels like things have gone too far with remote controlled machines for killing people, I think of words like "spoiled", "evil' and
most of all "coward". Not soldier, not war, not battle.
It's like feeding people to the lions in a coliseum, killing through a video monitor. Monitors are supposed to be used for good, not death. I think
these people deserve to see the face of the one that is killing them; it's what most people need if they are going to die in war, they need to see
the human that vanquished them. But there's no human for them, its cruel, inhuman. Has a war ever been fought like this in history before, where
one never sees their enemy, just their enemy's devices, out of reach in the sky?
My imagination says, if I were not shown otherwise, that the pilot behind the drone is sitting in a la-z-boy recliner in his living room, beer and
chips in a bowl on the tv tray next to him, still in his pajamas, playing war-kill on his patriot-box. This is the future of war, really? It hardly
seems like a battle.
