Send in the drones

Something almost unnoticed in the federal budget here:  5.6 million dollars for drones.

The budget request by the the Navy … Secretaría de Marina (Semar) … also includes maintenance and development.   I don’t think there’s anything particularly sinister, given that the drones are for coastal survellance, and justified as a cost-cutting measure, the drones not requiring a flight crew, and using much less fuel than those damn noisy helicopters that fly over my house.

    ” I don’t think there’s anything particularly sinister,….”

    Wait until they are weaponized.

    You don’t seriously think these will only be for observation only?

    When I initially commented I appear to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on each time a comment is added I receive
    4 emails with the exact same comment. There has to be an easy
    method you can remove me from that service? Kudos!
