Government’s New Bug Sized Drones to Spy On American Citizens
Grant J. Kidney — Just when you thought the warped controllers of society couldn’t get any more despotic in their deeds against the public, they increase their tyranny- as well as their scheming ways- by a factor of ten million.
Last year, DARPA (the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) announced that they had created a humming bird sized drone that could be used for reconnaissance missions or for more sinister purposes like keeping tabs on the American people. But if you thought a drone the size of a humming bird was the smallest a government spy-bot could get, you were wrong.
A drone the size of a mosquito
Announcing the new, bug sized MAVs (‘micro aerial vehicles’ for short). With spy-bots now the size of insects, big brother could be in your home right now, listening in to your every conversation.
Developed strictly for ‘urban combat’ purposes, DARPA’s MAVs may be used in a potential full-scale war with the American people, presumably once the economy collapses outright and anarchy grips the streets.
To validate how serious the government is when it comes to urban combat, here’s a snippet from an older report by the Foreign Military Studies Office, wherein it is notated that urban warfare is likely to increase well in to much of the 21st century.
“From early history on, urban combat has required masses of dismounted infantrymen, a significant amount of time, combined arms and astonishing quantities of ammunition. The assaulting force runs the risk of its own attrition by combat, insufficient supplies and epidemic diseases. Assaults on cities have resulted in heavy military and civilian casualties and shattered cities. Modern urban combat has often destroyed operations tempo, drained logistics stockpiles and ruined the reputations of promising commanders.”
This new wave of micro drones presents a tremendous challenge to both our rights and our privacy as free citizens. On one hand we have over 30,000 standard sized drones filling American skies over the course of the next decade. This push in and of itself is enough to suggest that almost every dystopic, sci-fi movie ever made is fast becoming a reality.
On the other hand however, we’re now faced with the possibility of drones being able to enter our homes or sit idly in our backyards, watching us as we play with our children or have guests over for a barbeque.
It isn’t just government however that plans to invade the heartland with advanced robots. We must also be on the look out for corporate drones owned and operated by mega-companies like Apple and Google. Just recently, a top U.S. senator has demanded that Apple ‘curbs’ their intended spy plane program. But even if such a victory were attained, there is no doubt that the progenitors of the forthcoming ‘robot apocalypse’ will carry on with wicked speed.
