      @AnthonyLoman I read something recently that some of these drones are being piloted by guys based in Syracuse. Still amazes me that we’re able to wage wars and drop bombs in the Middle East from a cubicle in upstate NY. USA! USA!

    I bet this was because of some sort of video that was made 8 months ago.  We should arrest the director of such a film on totally unrelated charges and keep him detained for an indefinate amount of time!!! All the while CBS 60 Minutes can hold their end up and not let it out until a day before some important event!

    The US later found it was not one of their drones.  In fact, it was Ants RC helicopter flying out of control.

    I’m pretty sure I read that dwarves were piloting the drones. Luckily dwarves are not considered humans, so it’s not a big deal.

    Built in 1975 buy a occupied Georgian worker. They are lucky it only took two of those Former soviet pieces of crap to catch a Single propeller powered  MQ-1 that flies at a maximum speed of 135 Miles per hour.
