    Re: Russia says intercepted US drone over Crimea: arms group

    The problem with drones is that they are controlled by satellite radio signals which are actually pretty weak. A ground based transmitter can easily take one over. As soon as our enemies have the information they need to control the drones, the drones will become useless and we'll be busy bringing down their drones.

    So, now the task is to create autonomous drones.

    The US military hopes that drones will be capable of changing their own missions, altering course without a human command, and buzzing through the skies in coordinated groups within the next 25 years, according to a new Defense Department report.

    The US Department of Defense (DoD) explained its hopes for the upcoming decades in its Unmanned Systems Integrated Roadmap, released to the public last week. At nearly 150 pages, the report outlines a variety of goals for air, land, and sea vehicles – yet the unmanned aerial systems (as drones are called) are featured prominently throughout.

    You do understand that drones flying out of Ukraine means the CIA has boots on the ground in Ukraine, or do you not know that the CIA runs the drone program? Who'd a thunk it, eh? In Ukraine? USAID. NED. Freedom House. NGOs up the wazoo. Gosh, what could all that mean?

    According to many in this thread, the whole story is propaganda anyway. But I do take your point that clandestine boots may already be there, in fact it is most likely. Still, even with knowing that, I don't think our mission would be rooted in a nefarious goal, rather preventing one.

    Heaven forbid. Just what need - armed uncontrolled computers flying around.

    And no, it's not most everyone that sees a Putin/Hitler connection. Just those who don't want to miss a chance at war with Russia. Did you see the flack that Hillary Clinton took for making such a connection?
    Clinton tried a similar distraction. It did not work.

    Supposedly this drone was from Germany, but even if not, it was flying under the approval of the nation of Ukraine.

    Which currently doesn't have a legitimate, democratically-elected government. That approval is pretty much meaningless.

    Actually they do have an elected legitimate government.
