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.

    Gotta hand it to the military . Killer drones are better than soldiers coming back without limbs or worse body bags.

    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.

    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.

  17. Shytown Provoked on April 15, 2022 at 6:27 pm

    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.

  18. V P on April 15, 2022 at 6:27 pm

    Theae morons who yell drones fly children die have never lost anyone in terror attacks

    Unfortunately, genocidal thermonuclear WW3 is not too far away, please follow the latest news at "Countdown World News" page of RKK Book website. Humankind has been playing with nuclear fire since 1945, and the bottom line is, if we continue doing so, this fire will consume us one day. Now is the time to turn to God-given wisdom and make the only right step as it might be too late to do so tomorrow. We have responsibility to take a good care of our children and ensure they have a future.

    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..

  42. ElexG on April 15, 2022 at 6:50 pm

    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?

  43. M J on April 15, 2022 at 6:51 pm

    Isis uses drones that u buy at Best Buy and straps them with c4

    Joe Biden is prob the worst president in American history. Surrendering in Afganistan. Trying confront China by giving Austrillia nuclear submarines lol. It doesnt make sense IMO. Why not just station american submarines in south pacific? China has largest Navy… there is a war that must be fought
