The coming drone attack on AmericaSubmitted by kindredobserver on Fri, 12/21/2012 - 21:32
Drones on domestic surveillance duties are already deployed by police and corporations. In time, they will likely be weaponized.
People often ask me, in terms of my argument about "ten steps" that mark the descent to a police state or closed society, at what stage we are. I am sorry to say that with the importation of what will be tens of thousands of drones, by both US military and by commercial interests, into US airspace, with a specific mandate to engage in surveillance and with the capacity for weaponization – which is due to begin in earnest at the start of the new year – it means that the police state is now officially here.
