Why the Pentagon Fears Chinese Drones

China is becoming the world leader in small drone manufacturing with companies like DJI. Even the US military has been using them. But now the Pentagon has banned their use, over concerns of Chinese drones are a national security risk. Is this another front in the US China trade war? Or something more?

    Funny this shows up when they have ten to twenty drones that are hovering over our head every single night and only at night here in berwick Louisiana what’s up with that bullshit

  2. Igor on August 18, 2020 at 10:15 am

    Its only the start of the ‘just found’ vulnerabilities.

    I’m using a Huawei phone to watch this video.

  4. piet ikke on August 18, 2020 at 10:17 am

    First they moved all our western company’s there. Gave them all our know how, and now cry that they are afraid of Chinese drones. Sounds like another globalists setup for something

  5. Vinmango B on August 18, 2020 at 10:19 am

    What ???the U.S spend’s 1 trillion on defense and can’t make its own drones????? wow us, on your side but wow.

  6. Jim Liu on August 18, 2020 at 10:20 am

    Because they are everywhere billions of them worldwide

    cant wait i really hope they give a share of that money to the company i bought cheap stocks from hearing this news!

  9. Theodore Freeman on August 18, 2020 at 10:22 am

    You get it from China or Google will give the information to China. You are fighting a lose lose battle and will never change . Google will sell out it users that trusted them at a drop of a hat for a dollar. How do you think all these solicitors get your information they buy it from Google and Google get it from business that uses there software. If you use anything Google his been tied to they have access to everything in your business up to your bathroom habits.

  10. b Low on August 18, 2020 at 10:23 am

    That’s fear mongering. The Pentagon, US military can upload their own software into the drones.

  11. vikas goyal on August 18, 2020 at 10:23 am

    Usa 🇺🇸 should attack china 🇨🇳 now otherwise by 2025 china will destroy usa for sure
    As usa highly underestimated chinas devious plans

  12. AJAY on August 18, 2020 at 10:24 am

    DJI is a Chinese Govt sponsored joint ventured company….
    Totally unreliable for National Security…

  13. cruzan mongoose on August 18, 2020 at 10:24 am

    The Cheshire cat "China" has a big grin on its face.

  14. Edward C Tullis on August 18, 2020 at 10:25 am

    Letting your enemy control your infrastructue is a bad idea

  15. TexanerinLondon on August 18, 2020 at 10:25 am

    *Could" have built-in security flaws? You mean, "do have". This is Communist China and communists always lie. But it’s not just infosec but supply sec, too. If we go to war with China, do you think they’ll want to sell us hardware? Get off the enemy teet.

  16. Photovideo Oz on August 18, 2020 at 10:27 am

    DJI’s new mini drone is only 249g just below the limit for done registration.

  17. John Doe on August 18, 2020 at 10:32 am

    Doesn’t iPhone have same surveillance capability (except flight capability)?

  18. ap0lmc on August 18, 2020 at 10:33 am

    Scary thing about drones with shape charges and AI targeting that attack in swarms of thousands that have facial recognition.

  19. Smoking Joe on August 18, 2020 at 10:33 am

    China has drones the size of a mosquito

  20. joe k on August 18, 2020 at 10:34 am

    Where do cellphones come from? Oh that’s right, China. Bluetooth, China, the list is endless. Pack a bit of cell phone tech into a drone. Fly drone, drone makes a call to china on it’s own. How many times do you get calls from a computer? Just saying

  21. Cheef Smokealot on August 18, 2020 at 10:35 am

    Why does the Chinese city in the back ground pic have a booze bottle building? 😆

  22. China Uncensored on August 18, 2020 at 10:37 am

    Was anyone else surprised how reliant the US military is on Chinese made drones?

  23. Afyx on August 18, 2020 at 10:38 am

    DJI is the best

  24. Sabrina Peterson on August 18, 2020 at 10:38 am

    You mean clones are on the raise

  25. Qiang Qin on August 18, 2020 at 10:39 am

    Why Apple n Google don’t make drones, but stuck on phones forever?! It’s not DJI’s fault, and they’re doing great. The U.S has much more tech resources than China l think, and the only one we got is iPhone, there are whole bunch of tech companies, even Kodak, IBM n Motorola can do this too, but they just don’t, a small drone is just a little bit hard for them to fly… So, G.I wants to cry!!! (If you don’t politically trust someone) and the last I want to say: Elon Musk, you should make it, now! Stop focus on that Model X-Y-Z, and make Mavic 3…

  26. kawaii byakko on August 18, 2020 at 10:44 am

    just saying it’s cheap and why would china care about this? just dont buy it in the first places ez. i found US have problem like you gonna blame every shit then why u use it in the first place? :v it’s like using facebook and post all your privacy then blame facebook expose your privacy.

    Pretty weird for you guys still having wet dream who cant make a clear statment

  27. Dat Nguyen on August 18, 2020 at 10:45 am

    I can not believe that US arms force uses China product for reconnaissance, it must be some stupid bean counter in Pentagon want to save couple bucks and put US soldiers at risk.

  28. Xuan Pan on August 18, 2020 at 10:45 am

    哈哈哈哈哈笑死了 为我国的技术感到自豪哈哈哈哈哈

  29. Dirty Bird on August 18, 2020 at 10:45 am

    The military has an annual budget of over $700 billion annually. They have access to every piece of tech known to mankind. The military could just design & build their own. The only drawback is the U.S. military version comparable to a $1000 DJI model would cost $100,000 each.

  30. Bagginses on August 18, 2020 at 10:46 am

    of course the governmemt would want to create american manufacturing jobs, but solely for drones…….

  31. Chris L on August 18, 2020 at 10:47 am

    I’m going to film my balls with a DJI to stick it to China.

  32. MrGrinny on August 18, 2020 at 10:50 am

    Somewhat of an old story and I had heard this was worse than is being reported and fully intentional. Just can’t trust lying communists *surprise*, That break nearly every rule, contract or even there own laws when it suits.

  33. Cap'n Jay Greybeard on August 18, 2020 at 10:50 am

    No Facts, just scare tactics

  34. Love Day on August 18, 2020 at 10:51 am

    I’ve designed a 7G system. Is there anyone willing to buy. Low price only 20Â¥

  35. Genuine Sanity on August 18, 2020 at 10:51 am

    Orgonite fucks up cell signals and satellite signals. I put some next to a cell tower… they are always trying fix it because of complaints of lousy reception. They can’t figure it out. Freedom for all. Back to Natural Law ! we are all bound by Natural Law. Eternal and immutable. Ignorance is the root of all evil.

  36. Android_Engineer on August 18, 2020 at 10:51 am

    Sounds like the beginnings to the plot of homefront.

  37. capitan latino on August 18, 2020 at 10:51 am

    this is extremely dangerous to our democracy NATHAN RICH https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yUGPIeE9kMc

  38. Fukushima is Revelation on August 18, 2020 at 10:53 am

    200 million weaponized legged drones are described in the six billion copies in print of the book of Revelation chapter 9. So yeah drones will be very relevant to the next major war on the earth, which I imagine will be principle between china an India.

  39. Wandering Wade on August 18, 2020 at 10:54 am

    The Chinese can spy on us, but hey!… look at the money we saved!

  40. Lawyer Man on August 18, 2020 at 10:57 am

    Laser Cats are the real threat

    Carry an umbrella.

  42. Gary Wiggett on August 18, 2020 at 11:01 am

    America is suffering from Chinaphobia
    You have fear

  43. Daxaaar The Bot on August 18, 2020 at 11:02 am

    Flying Trojan Horses. Nice.

    at last waking up from a fancy fairytale globalization scam which is destroying its core values and its peoples jobs, security, economy and politics

  46. 3516MOS on August 18, 2020 at 11:06 am

    America needs to stop ALL support of the communist chinese government. We need to stop doing business with ALL company’s from china because THE GOVERNMENT OF CHINA OWNS THEM ALL!!!!

  47. Jules De Vera on August 18, 2020 at 11:07 am

    "Huawei makes knock-off iPhones"?
    Huawei is superlatively better than any iPhone which is 5 years behind its competitors.

  48. Rona Goodwell on August 18, 2020 at 11:07 am

    It should be hard to believe the Pentagon became reliant on tech produced by their number 1 strategic rival. Should be… but it’s not. Even with the monstrous defense budget, procurement officials decided they needed to buy stuff on the cheap. Good thinking, guys. Our security is in good hands.

  49. robertm on August 18, 2020 at 11:08 am

    China Uncensored videos are propaganda of hostility. Makes the world to be enemy with China on everything…No just and fair at all. SUCKS!

  50. Zorro Dahousecat on August 18, 2020 at 11:08 am

    The US realized they used that same trick themselves during the cold war, installing cameras in every Xerox copier.
