It is so frightening to see how many of these drones other countries are buying. This technology has been unleashed, and is proliferating with lightening speed. The focus is on selling drones as fast as possible, with no foresight as to how this will all play out in the future.

Clearly an NRA win when it comes to foreign policy.

Thanks for posting this great info, Judy.
A comedian explained this in a nutshell awhile back. U.S. manufactures weapons, sells weapons to other countries, goes to war with these countries....then repeat. It all just puts us in a state of eternal war....with ourselves. Sickening!

The use of drones is going to cause a lot of trouble. It's so foolish, and so treacherous.

This is shortsighted and risky, just for the $. They might just get into the wrong hands and come back at us.
