Germany jumps on the drone bandwagon

Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV)

The use of drones for both surveillance and assassination has been an extremely controversial issue with people evenly on both sides. The Obama presidency has been marred with the prolific use of drones both foreign and domestically, however it appears now that the German defense minister wants to follow in is footsteps. Reuters reports on the German support for using unmanned drones:

Germany, which used unmanned aircraft in warfare during World War Two, should deploy armed drones in its military, its defense minister said.

Buying arms has been a sensitive issue in Germany ever since World War Two, when Germany developed unmanned weapons and used them to bomb cities in Britain.

Germany has been using three leased Israeli Heron drones for surveillance in Afghanistan. The defense ministry is considering buying U.S. Predator B drones, which carry weapons and also have surveillance systems, for use from 2015.

Alternatively, it could buy the Heron successor model, the Heron TP, which is also armed. A decision is expected to be made in the autumn.

Will you be prepared when everything we take for granted changes overnight?

Just think about this for a couple of minutes. What if the U.S. Dollar wasn’t the world’s reserve currency? Ponder that… what if…

Empires Rise, they peak, they decline, they collapse, this is the cycle of history.

This historical pattern has formed and is already underway in many parts of the world, including the United States.

Don’t be one of the millions of people who gets their savings, retirement, and investments wiped out.

    This program proves how the American people have lost their nation, and don’t even seem to care. The Corporate State is doing whatever it wants. There will be over 30,000 of these in American skies within the next few years. In the recent NY times article “A Day Job Waiting for a Kill Shot a World Away”, Drone “operators” state clearly that they can see inside houses. They speak of watching ‘militants’ going to bed at night and getting up in the morning, etc.

    A couple years ago (not sure when) I saw a youtube video some guy in the military put up and it was a video footage from a miltary helicopter (at least that is the impression they give you)…You never see the guys who are watching, just hear them laughing and typical sex banter…The video? They were watching from their computers a woman in a hajib going at some guy in a car. They could see them right through the roof of the car.

    This is worse than Orwell’s 1984. At least in that dark fiction, people knew they were being watched. Now, people are still assuming they have privacy. Not so. They are watching sex, toilet conditions, and other compromising situations and personal moments,  etc.

    This also proves that the 16 “secret intelligence” agencies in the U.S. know a lot more than they admit. They like to play dumb…like in 9/11…

      Any known online discussions on home modifications to make, due to this drone activity? Any materials or construction methods that can help defend against this?
