I'd like to note here, there were drones WITH weapons on the wings seen over and around the Chicago NATO summit which happened some time back. I'll
note, in all fairness, there were also U.S. Combat forces in the area, in addition to everything the Coast Guard had to contribute for that region
....atop to civilian law enforcement that represented a very diverse range of agencies as well.
Anyone who says drones haven't been over the U.S. while armed, isn't very well informed. However infrequently it's happened, ONCE outside the
flight to and from a training range is too much. Far too much.
Also, we can say they don't patrol with weapons hot at the moment...but there are MANY things that have started since 9/11 with a 'It won't
become......' or 'but it's only.....'. The Patriot Act is the best example of apparent limitations to action being NO limitations at all in real
world practice, and years down the road.
I personally don't mind drone TECH...but the tech is being abused, as it always seems to be, for control and destruction first and foremost above all
other uses. George Orwell couldn't have guessed how bad reality would be compared to 1984.
