Thats just 6 years away, and you know how time flies. Speakin of flying, what will SO many drones (paid for by at least 54% of your hard-earned tax
dollars), be doing exactly?
Watching you? Sure, but I don't think that's the half of it. Americans being policed by military drones in addition to highly corrupt local law
enforcement. Sounds like freedom and homeland security to me.
If they are not safe enough for Pakistan,
they are definitely not safe enough for US airspace.
To hell with drones.
As to the specious reasoning that shooting one down constitutes a threat to civilian facilities...
The day that drone surveillance feeds are the property of the civilians and WE get to
use them to spy on Corporations and Government is the day I will give a care.
they should be terminated with extreme prejudice.
or sling shots,
It is reprehensible all the surveillance in this country,
and NONE of it is used to help the citizens.
The chit is always classified, or need-to-know, so it's a tool of interests, and powerful interests only.
Well I have a powerful interest.
All unmanned cameras should be destroyed.
Whether they are at a traffic intersection,
or flying over my back yard.
With that many drones in the sky, it'll be easier for another country to also have their drones infiltrate the American air space. China, Iran,
They only have to make them look the same and they won't even be noticed
Over 90% of the UAVs that will be flown over the US will be for law enforcement. They're going to be small to medium UAVs, NOT the Predators and
Global Hawks that the military uses. They're going to be short ranged, low endurance like the Quadcopter, and similar UAVs.
Eventually. They have a good bit of catching up to do (other than tech transfers to our allies). China has made some strides and has sent a long
range UAV mission out over the Senkaku Islands, but that's the only other nation I've heard of that has any kind of long range aircraft, and they
don't have many.
