  •  I agree it is the future, and I'm not reassured (4+ / 0-)

    I agree that using drones is the future, both for peaceful purposes (traffic reports, weather-chasing), and (cough) law enforcement (use of force against peaceful gatherings, etc).

    Interestingly, the definition of a bad guy depends on your point of view.  Our founding fathers were terrorists to colonial brits, and our beloved soldiers were occupying storm troopers to the Iraqis.  

    What side of that defintion you fall on could very well depend on who is operating that drone.  And should you ever be targeted, your death will be celebrated as another victory against bad guys and terrorists.  That should give you a measure of satisfaction.
