New Predator Will Help

The highlighted piece should be good news to those who object to US military excursions for the sole reason that any US casualties are unacceptable, no matter how few. The Predator B, which has been secret until recently, (I knew about it two years ago) will increase the ability of our forces to strike behind enemy lines without endangering our men. With no pilot on board, the craft can be flown from anywhere in the world, striking targets at any time, day or night. It brings to mind a series of sci-fi books I read as a teenager. I think Larry Niven was the author. He had a world where the military had these tanks with computers on board that made the tanks able to make decisions on their own, without needing a crew on board. Someday, maybe.

I'll be back
