Lockheed and Grumman are definitively heading towards this direction with their new drones. What's new? Their autonomy. One will be powered and fed by a laser beam and the other the X-47B will have a programmed memory. Will they be able to differenciate a civilian from a military target? A man from a child? Or who gives a F--K?
As those weapons are becoming more sophisticated, their cost will be on our dime in the name of what? Our security? Our defense? Or their private interests?
If you invent a widget the US military will figure out a way to turn it into a weapon. The psychopath industry.
It is a sad picture of our future. And the worst is that we're paying fot that. I'm wonderig when the masses will wake up?
Aquarian Age officially, officially, officially starts Dec 23rd. That should bring about change, but the powers that be will fight it tooth and nail to the
If it's synonymous of fight, I will be on the first line. I've never experienced revolutions but if I have to go through one, I will. I am fed of policies taken by the government in my name!

Abolition of all the Patriotic act and bills that limits the freedom of any American.
Limited budget for the Pentagon, CIA, NSA... No more loopholes for corporations especially the oil industry. Any offshore accounts will be taxed... Develop economical partnership with the world. No international military involvement unless the army of a country is attacking us (not only rumors like the "Iraqi weapons of mass destruction" trick!
