Drones, as they're used right now, are for monitoring civilians in other countries, and (apparently) our own country soon.

Stanford & NYU did extensive studies on how drones are used, and published their findings here:

Personally, I don't like that the USA is violating international law. I don't like that women and children are slaughtered by drones. I don't like forcing towns to live in fear, with the constant buzz of human-less death machines, and how that creates a new generation of terrorists.


If we had a Republican president, you'd see protests against drones. Which is why capitalism is so perfectly built for neoliberal presidents: They keep the people from rioting at home with a handout or two, and big business supports the never-ending wars. Everyone is happy.


Rand Paul didn't want this coming to America,



And for that I thank him.
