Drones: A military revolution

Drones: A military revolution
Subscribe to France 24 now http://bit.ly/france24ENG

Drones: unmanned, discreet and economical planes, are the secret weapons of approximately 30 armies around the world. But these small remote-controlled aircraft are also criticized for the significant collateral damage they can cause on the ground. Our reporters in the United States bring you an exclusive report filmed on a US Army base in New Mexico.
When it comes to reporting on the use of drones by the United States, one can only scratch the surface, because of the secretive nature of the American drone programme. Only a relatively small part of it is public, and its deadliest component remains a secret.

According to the US military, drones don’t even exist. The term “drones”, that is. The planes are officially called “RPAs” by all US officials, except, notably, US President Barack Obama. RPA stands for remotely piloted aircraft. By using this term, the military wants to underscore that these machines are actually piloted by humans, and aren’t just robots.

    Independent sovereign nations of the world and it’s Tailored made jurisdiction constitution that dominates our species of humanity social structure is a flawed concept and an extremely dangerous ideology.. we must abolish independent sovereign nations of the world , it’s patriotic ideology or it will kill us all as a species..

    Let us as a species abandon our sovereignty and patriotism ideology
    And find a new way to live..

    shooting beams. there is a rumor, mOOsad, is flying them and having fun playing the video game… zap gentiles. It’s serious. we have emf, rf, and
    radioactive ion beams.

    Why does America have all of these killing machines? To protect Americans? Hell No! It’s to fatten the pockets of wealthy killers. All of our money spent on destroying, instead of building up or country.

  26. Sleeping Melons on March 11, 2021 at 12:32 am

    Why is there so much hype over drones but none of these activist seem to have issue with a cruise missile launched from a ship? It’s called progression folks. Get used to it. There’s more to come.

    All that scientific research and advancement are in negative ways

  37. Slartibartfast on March 11, 2021 at 12:51 am

    Drone pilot = loser.
    Al least real pilots who fly take a certain amount of risk, the only risk the drone pilots take is tripping over as they enter their killing cubicle.
    War should be risky. One problem with drones is because the human risk is so low politicians are more willing to go to war.

  38. Francisco Montero on March 11, 2021 at 12:51 am

    Wonder how many nukes you could fit in the reaper.

  41. ElexG on March 11, 2021 at 1:00 am

    Civilians are going to die, it’s a part of war. Civilian casualties are always minimized to the best of the military’s ability, but now you see terrorists actually keeping civilians around them to minimize strikes because they know western media will give all the attention to dead civilians. You see this a lot in Gaza with civilian human shields and such. It’s despicable. These rich anti-war hippy liberals need to understand this and get over it and do something more productive with their lives. A job perhaps?

  42. Francisco Montero on March 11, 2021 at 1:00 am

    why dont you nuke more countries like hirosima and nagasaky ??? you have a need for the kill go on kill the people of the world ,,,,, usa the land of the death by police usa is cheap dangerous violent unfriendly and agressive, i would never ever go back to usa in my life not even to disney land

  46. Dawie Van Emmenes on March 11, 2021 at 1:05 am

  47. 20ruskia on March 11, 2021 at 1:06 am

    Drones are the most effective tool available for fighting guerrilla war, and their use is only going to expand.

  48. V P on March 11, 2021 at 1:07 am
