You won't have to endure the drones for long, Americans. Oil is soon to run out, and those drones are not needed, thus the military will stop using them.

hahahaha what?
1st the drones are not using a oil based energy source.
2nd oil wont run out atleast for the next 40 year (at this consumption rate) is that soon?
3rd drones will only be needed more as people are going to get crazy that there is no fuel anymore.
4th military stops using them because the oil runs out? wtf is that for a illogical connection?

are you on drugs or something? befor i never found your ideas that wrong. but the last 2 days it seems you can't say a logical thing anymore. wtf is going on whit you?

...? You can't fly without an oil based energy source. Not with the technology we have. The drones run on airplane fuel, high octane reciprocating aircraft engine fuel, with liters of oil for lubrication. What do you think they run on?

So yah. Not only do they need oil base energy sources, they need high quality oil based energy sources, just as all aircraft do...

2nd oil wont run out atleast for the next 40 year (at this consumption rate) is that soon?

Especially considering he is basically stating "Don't worry about the oppression. If we just be good citizens for 40 years it will all be over"

3rd drones will only be needed more as people are going to get crazy that there is no fuel anymore.

If we stop using fuel...because there is only a little fuel left...then what is the purpose of that little fuel that is left?

4th military stops using them because the oil runs out? wtf is that for a illogical connection?

1. The aircraft runs on oil.
2. There is no alternative to oil for any aircraft.
3. They can not run without oil
4. They will stop being used when we run out of oil.

Pretty logical, actually.

You won't have to endure the drones for long, Americans. Oil is soon to run out, and those drones are not needed, thus the military will stop using them.

But this is still insane and pointless. So I will assume that, as Punisher said, you are high.

I would rather feel safe at night knowing the government can monitor suspected terrorists at th expense of knowing which Internet sites I visit rather than regret after something major occurs again.

I really would prefer it if the government didn't know my porno habits. If they want to know what kind of stuff turns me off, they should just ask politely. I'll tell.

There really is no reason for the government to monitor what we do on the internet unless there is suspicion first, in which case it should be up to the internet providers to act. However, internet providers shouldn't be forced to monitor our every move, it should be consensual. Lastly, nobody should be spied on. If anyone is monitoring your every move on the internet, then it should be known to all parties that are involved, including the person being watched.

As for the drones, they should only be able to observe public areas. any area that would off limits for everyone else should also be off limits for the government. If you're high in the sky and you're looking down onto someone's property, I'm pretty sure that's okay. If you're just barely hovering above someone's property, I'm pretty sure you would need the property owner's consent.

I have no problem with cameras in public areas as long as BOTH government and citizens can have cameras. Areas in which citizens are prohibited from using cameras should also be prohibited from the government except for certain areas such as military bases, or other government property that isn't freely open to the public.

Close, but no Cuban cigar.

I, dear sir, am sick.
I know, impossible, isn't it?

Anyways, I must say, due to the fact I don't live in the U.S. anymore, I find it amusing to be in the third-person's seat.

I disagree. This is the kind of attitude that allows terrorism to happen frat and questions later. If we're going to value such petty freedoms, the government can see if I watch extreme porn for all I care, then we're going to give up the ability to monitor terrorism. And that's something formpeople to choose. The loss of "dignity" in knowing what you do, or being blown to bits?

For example The Lackawanna Six.  The case of these Yemeni-Americans, who traveled to Afghanistan in the Spring of 2001 to attend an al Qaeda training camp and met with Osama bin Laden, has been described by many observers as an example of government overkill.  Most of the men appear to have turned away from violence after 9/11, and they were not actively plotting any attacks when they were arrested.  But the group had clear links to senior al Qaeda leaders, and the case is instructive as an example of how a wide range of intelligence sources can be useful to authorities: the group first came to the attention of the FBI through an anonymous tip, and later information came from intercepted emails and from a detainee captured in Afghanistan.

Incorrect. Although the current drones use oil, they wouldn't need to in the future.

However, internet providers shouldn't be forced to monitor our every move, it should be consensual.

Didn't you give consent by scrolling down and clicking "I agree" when signing up?

MQ-9 Reaper, a small drone, is 10,500 lbs, three times that small plane. Not that this is relevant, but the drones of today way three times what that thing did, go longer even when they are full of munitions, and don't have any of the disadvantages of solar power (The fact that it needs sun is a big one, and the fact that solar panels are delicate is another big one.)
