Microdrones, Some as Small as Bugs, Are Poised to Continue a Cancer of Wars

How to hide in plain sight. Microaviary, replicate flights of moths, hawks, flies, other animals.

prototype of a mechanical hawk that in the future might carry out espionage or kill.

/yes, hawks can kill already, just not republican hawks/

From blimps to bugs, an explosion in aerial drones is transforming the way America fights and thinks about its wars.

Pentagon now, 2011, has some 7,000 aerial drones, compared with fewer than 50 a decade ago, expects 536 of new multiple role - spy and kill - drones.

Pentagon asked Congress for nearly $5 billion for drones next year, and by 2030 envisions ever more stuff of science fiction: “spy flies” equipped with sensors and microcameras to detect enemies, nuclear weapons or victims in rubble

Predator drone is being used in assassinations throughout Arab countries, Libya, Yemen, Pakistan, Afghanistan.

Last summer, fighter jets were almost scrambled after a rogue Fire Scout drone, the size of a small helicopter, wandered into Washington’s restricted airspace.

"It is a bad thing if we didn’t have a just cause for wars in the first place"... but how is military supposed to make money, to justify its existence, on government welfare?

Microdrones, Some as Small as Bugs, Are Poised to Alter War - NYTimes.com

wars is a failure of morality, of diplomacy, of common sense, of common reason, of law, of humanity.

war is a devils instrument. so is a gun, a weapon.

we all must carry out a mutual disarmament.

disturbed aggressors do not have place on this planet.
