Drones, Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid
We were watching an episode of "60 Minutes" recently that seemed very jazzed to visit Creech Air Force Base and show us all how their drones are used to destroy the "bad guys." They were very proud to show how a silent Predator could stay up for 24 hours pursuing its "prey" while, back in Nevada, the trigger is pulled when the "pilot" is sure that its 500 lb. laser guided bomb has found its target. When one of the pilots was asked if he felt that flying a drone was similar to playing a video game, he responded that there was no reset button.
