    When will something like this be happening right here at home?

    Push Button warfare. The New Air Force!

    Not really any different than sitting in a silo or nuclear submarine firing nuclear tipped missiles. The big difference is seeing what you have done being streamed live and in full color.

    Someone remind me why war is necessary and mostly over religious differences.

    Although I favor keeping as many military lives out of harm's way as possible, it's definitely "creepy". Over the long run I would fear the consequences of these people being desensitized to what they are doing as they continue to do it.

    Personally I think the drones should at least be flow by personnel nearby who can appreciate their consequences.

    We've had this issue ever since we started flying bombers. MASH even did an episode on it.
