DRONES IN ACTION - new order

Saturday 21 May 2011 at 8:14 pm

Drone Pilots---Neat stuff.
 
Three of the weapons and guidance system on the drones are products of
Raytheon ... our drone technology absolutely scares
the crap out of the Taliban & Al Quaida folks.
 
This is an interesting little video that should be in the hands of our
would-be enemies.
 
READ BEFORE WATCHING VIDEO (attached)
 
For non-pilots, these controllers are in Nevada and are each flying a drone
thousands of miles away in the combat zone in Iraq and Afghanistan.
 
Their left hand is on the throttle controlling the drone's engine. Note all the
 buttons which perform various tasks without removing the hand from
the throttle.
 
The right hand is flying the plane.
 
Welcome to the new world order. This is modern warfare.
 
Today's headline:  'Missiles fired from Nevada-controlled drone aircraft
kill Taliban leader’
 
Watch how it's done. Turn the speakers on & watch in full screen.
