We’re talking about drones here, but we could be talking about nukes or germs or whatever. This is just what people do with anything new. I’m not saying it’s good or bad, I’m just describing the reality.
A video posted on YouTube showing a drone firing a gun in a wooded area has caused some controversy today. The short video shows a four-rotored custom drone with a special rig containing a handgun. The handgun proceeds to fire four shots, handling the recoil better than might be expected. The user who posted the video also submitted it to Reddit, where a commenter noted that the apparent use of a solenoid trigger would class the device as an automatic weapon under ATF rules.
Commercial drones hit the market maybe a year ago? Something like that.
Now we already have some idea of how capable the military/police versions are, given that they are the only effective weapon in the middle east since the spec ops guys went in to play regime change at the tribal level in Afghanistan. The only sorta-problem is that they are expensive. Now imagine we find ourselves in a real war, maybe against a proper insurgent Caliphate, maybe against an armed and angry citizenry of ~100 million, maybe both, maybe somebody else. The important thing is that drones are the weapons that will fight the globalists’ fight in the next real war. The scaling up effort will be absolutely enormous, by which I mean ~10% of the US GDP will go into the improvement and production of these systems.
Hopefully they try to build the new factories and sensors and what-have-you with H1-Bs, but the fact is that there are a lot of genuinely smart people out there and you only really need a relatively small number of them to work on this sort of project. Compare this to the Manhattan project- there are more than 3 million people in the US with IQs over 135, and more than 100,000 with IQs over 150, and several hundred with IQs above 170. You only need maybe a dozen of the latter (Fermi and his ilk), maybe a few dozen of the 150 IQ contingent, and a building full of 135 IQ grunts who can follow complicated sets of directions without constantly introducing extra problems into the process. These are readily found and sifted, given proper motivation and an intolerance for bureaucratic bullshit.
What I’m saying is that it is eminently possible to do something rapidly productive if the elite folks actually put their minds to it, and we have already noted that all they care about is retaining power, and increasing and centralizing power.
