Ok, so, if this makes since to you then please tell me, but, as far as I'm concerned, it just doesn't make any sense. So, the military has all these prototypes for new bombers, long rang-short range weapons, vehicles, etc. What I don't understand is why we havent seen any use of these at all. I can give you a good example of this. So recently the U.S. government announced a new type of laser that could be used as weaponry. Now America is finally getting introduced to energy weapons, but, no. We have to use the same old stuff that isn't nearly doing the job rather than the new plasma weapons that are past the alpha stage of development. Believe me, I am ever so grateful for the men and women devoting their lives to protecting this country, but, with these new weapons there could also be chance of less death on our side. So why not give it a shot U.S. military? Are you trying to hide them from the Taliban? I just don't understand. Maybe it's me or maybe it's not. I just think we could have a much smaller loss of soldiers each year than letting families become devastated over the loss of a son or daughter because of our lack of initiative. I will say this aloud. I haven't told anyone yet, but, I escaped from Russia. I've lived there my whole life. I can't say who I've trained with or what I've done. All I can say is, this country is amazing and I am willing to die researching and snooping around the most secure facilities if it means helping America become a stronger country. There was nothing for me in Russia, but, here there is hope, freedom, and independence. I don't want to watch more soldiers die. Step your game up guys!

Welcome to the bv, markedone

Yeah, I think we could solve much of the problems in Afghanistan and ALL of the problems on our borders if we stop what we are doing and just mass-produce drones with night vision, thermal vision, motion detection, and mounted weapons. That way we could sit from afar and do our business without putting any of our military at risk.

You're disguising a call for increase in the usage of unmanned air drones with some alleged concern for the lives of members in the military, but we know the damage that drones have caused even with those details you mentioned. We know that 120 drone attacks in Pakistan have resulted in the deaths of 1000 Pakistanis, most of them who were villagers and non-militants.

And here we go. The U.S. ushered in the New Year with 20 civilian deaths with these drones:

It's more Christian to seek an end to aggression; that's if, of course, one is to follow the teachings of Christ which does not require a complete adherence to Christian dogma.

Seems like if you throw up any Christian values, you would be preaching the same thing to the so called Muslim insurgents hacking off the heads of fellow Muslims.

Well excuse me, but I guess I should have put a disclaimer!

I certainly don't support firing on random targets. And manning our borders with drones is not aggression. It's simply securing our country's boundaries which otherwise would take tens of thousands of people working around the clock to get done.

What I envision is, a drone patroling an area and with the motion detectors, sounding an alarm to a real, live person sitting behind a desk watching the camera footage, when it senses movement in an area where there shouldn't be. In that case, the human element is still there, but instead of a person risking getting their head blown off by an enemy, they are watching safely from behind a computer.

I don't see anything wrong with that.

You took me completely wrong.

And I'm shocked after all this time we've spent talking on the bv, that you would purport to believe I support aggression and killing of innocent people.

I've never suggested it and for you to believe it to me means you haven't learned anything about me after digesting thousands of posts. And that tells me you are blinded... blinded by hate, or radical ideology, I don't know.

Aquarian also ignores that everytime the USA hits a target that is real, they claim innocent people were hit which is all boloney. Anyone remember the wedding we slaudered everyone including the bride and groom and countless guests, all of which had their AK47's at the wedding.

I agree, greeney. Even if the facts that Aquarian state are REMOTELY true; our technology is becoming ever more so accurate by the day. So by the time we start using more robotics than soldiers, we will most likely have ridiculously accurate drone weapons, but, frankly, I don't really remember hearing about 1,000 pakistanians being killed because of some drones? Not even from my tactical team. So unless you can prove it, and, it's not a bunch of crap like people saying Obama doesn't have big ears, my opinion will stay the same.

Indeed TMO and greeney.

Most of the "innocent bloodshed" we hear about after pretty much all our attacks, is the expected immediate circulation of false propaganda by those that don't want us there.

Jesus said kill the bad guy AND if you kill his family in the process, so be it.

That's my interpretation of the BV badge-wearing Xians.

There's one thing Ninor nailed on the head, and it has to do with the above quote. Like I said Tom " you really are a real piece of work " " a touch of class if you will " 🙄

Kill em all Tom, RIGHT--Even in the Nest before they ever get old enough to do PEOPLE LIKE YOU harm. Disgusting and not worth another word.!
