Drone Wars

Drone Age: US kids allured by UAVs, college courses in demand
Unmanned aircraft systems is a major in college now? Drone pilots get paid more than real pilots? Ten thousand drones in the skies of the USA within five years?

What will be really scary will be the miniaturization of drones. They'll be so small they'll fly right into your house and spy on you that way. And instead of dropping bombs, they'll drop poison into your drink. Or who knows what other deadly payload they'll deposit. Already remote controlled helicopters are available for consumer purchase. In another twenty years who knows what else people will be able to buy. Neighbors could wind up engaging in drone wars against each other. Each retaliation escalating things just a little until someone is seriously hurt. There's no telling what will happen!!!

I can just imagine young military recruits having a good time flying their drones especially low in Saline Valley and spying on all the nude people bathing in the hot tubs there! They'll put in extra hours of training just so as to make sure that they don't miss a thing!!!

Confirmed: American Citizens Killed By U.S. Drones
One of them was deliberately killed, the others were apparently accidental...

FBI Admits Using Drones in the U.S.
The government is keeping watch on everything we do outside and online. This is not the land of the free, it's the Surveillance Nation!

The line between remote control hobby and drone is a very broad one.

Those don't look like they'd do well outside on a windy day, but they'd probably work fine inside. It's bad enough that the government has drones, but now people can spy on their neighbors with their own personal arsenal of surveillance drones! What's the world coming to?

If they made a drone small enough it could fly right down someone's chimney! Neighborhood spying could be the next big thing. And think how embarrassing it would be to post photos of your neighbor on the internet. You never know what you might catch people doing in the privacy of their own house! As far as I'm concerned the drones are just harmless toys, but in the wrong hands they could be used for nefarious purposes!

All the toy drones I've ever seen are loud enough so that you would see them before they could spy on you. Landing one in someone's chimney would be easy. Flying one out though would be next to impossible.
