Droning on…

There will be some articles scattered through this post.  All are just support.  I am going to talk about a relatively new type of warfare: drone strikes.

It seems that, since the early 2000’s, the US has been using drones (small, unmanned, armed flying planes) to attack militants in several countries.  Now, I knew about drones.  I knew we had developed them.  I was also worried about them.  My biggest worry was that we would have them flying over the US airspace and, eventually, terminating US citizens.

I have read that this will not happen…I have read it will happen.  What I am reading now is that thousands of drone strikes have already occurred in such places as Pakistan.   I have also read that many of the targets which were killed also carried with them a host of innocent deaths, such as 69 children at a school.

I read that a drone strike has been done about every 4 days while Obama has been in office (I am not trying to make him out to be bad or worse; this is just what I am reading).

The other thing that I am reading or that is being inferred is that the US is not acknowledging any of the innocent deaths.  True?  No?  I don’t know.

This is the article that made me have to do this post today:

Drone attacks explained

This lead me to the other articles and, combined with what I already knew, has me very concerned.  The mention of the CIA always brings Bond movies, cloak and dagger stuff, and unexplained things to mind.  To have them in charge of all of these drone strikes worries me a lot.  I am not trying to be unAmerican.  I am not trying to stir up the waters (muddy or not).  What I am trying to do is to bring to your notice the idea that, possibly, this could get even more out of hand and, eventually, end up in US citizen deaths, too.

I won’t “drone” on any longer about this subject.  I just felt that you all needed to know – you are my family and I try to tell my family when I am worried.

Am I too late? >>> US Drones <<<

Game of Drones

My nightly (well, almost) reading schedule is about 30-45 minutes after I take my night meds.  During this time, I get into bed and read until lights out (hopefully just long enough before that I actually get to turn the lights out and put my book away).  When I am out, I read my Kindle; when I am in bed, I read an actual printed-on-paper, have-to-bookmark-with-paper book.

A few weeks ago, I finished reading “Port Mortuary” a Kay Scarpetta novel by Patricia Cornwell, one of my favs.  I love the forensic items, which is probably why I like JmmcDowell’s stories and books so much (look at some —>  here  <—.  Which reminds me, I did a google search on Meghan Bode, interesting finds for a character!

But, back to business.  “Port Mortuary” mentioned drones in its story.  The type of drones it spoke of kinda interested me, enough to send myself an email to use it as a post someday.  However, what brought it to the top was that I found, through an entirely different method, a YouTube video on the drones.  This caused me to cry out mention say in my head “Eureka!” and decided to do the post.

I would like you to picture a scene:  a group of foreign scientists pouring over the details of a new type of atomic bomb.  One of the scientists smacks at the back of his head to kill a mosquito.  A few hours later, he dies (scientist, not the mosquito – keep up!).  Toxicology checks don’t come up with foul play.  As he was the head scientist, the project falls behind and takes months longer.  In the meantime, the United States comes up with a new type of defense against a “possible” future atomic threat.

Sound weird (cue strange music)?  Good for us?  Yep.  The way this could happen is through the use of drone robots the size of mosquitoes.  Yep, that’s right, small little buggers.  Here there would be two types:  the first would be ones with small digital cameras to either store or send pictures of the project to us.  The second would be a drone whose purpose was to “sting” that particular scientist and inject a nanobot which can replicate itself and deliver a very tiny amount of a substance – testosterone, for example – which when created by millions of nanobots could conceivably kill a person.

All fine and good for the up-and-coming-scyfy movie (Do you like the newest spelling of ScyFy?).  However, it can get darker.  There are some articles which talk about the President (doesn’t matter who.  I doubt it would stop due to an election) using these small drones to spy and or remove any specific United States citizen who was in the way.

Now, I am not saying this is happening.  What I am talking about are articles which talk about this as, perhaps, more than a possibility.  Just another thought tossed at us for consideration.

What I ask you to think about is the idea that either of these scenarios could be true.  If they are, we would need to consider that the other scenario could be, too.  It comes across as sounding like a near-impossible assassination to detect.  Or, simply enough, a way to take invasion of privacy to a whole new level.  Can you imagine what some people out there could do, average people, if the cost of a drone dropped into the hundreds of dollars for surveillance?  Your average private detective could have a couple of them to see things that might be better left unseen.  And, if the camera ones become useable whose to say what little smart thing a good enough hacker/private chemist might do with a few of them.

Okay, that’s one of my newest paranoias, scares, theories, ideas on what could be happening while we sleep “safely”.  Below are a few of the foundations for this idea.  Look them over.

Are you into big government coverup?

How about just big scary paranoid ideas?
