The video is taking way too long to load for me for some reason.
Honestly, I have been on the fence about drones from the beginning. On one hand it seems like a safer way for our soldiers to combat the enemy, however it makes one wonder how many mistakes are made while taking out targets and how much collateral damage there is as a result. Unfortunately, the enemy in the middle east is a different kind of enemy than in wars past. It is much harder to know who they are. So while I don't like drones being used to take out targets, I can appreciate the lives it saves in many instances. The fact that they are so prevalent now and even being made commercially is concerning. Not to mention that other countries are getting their hands on the technology so it's seemingly here to stay whether I like it or not.

How will it affect your life? I really don't know. I suppose it all depends on who the parties are that are using drones and what they are using them for. I don't like some of the articles I have read on the drone technology and what they can use it for here, but I suppose that would be state matters for the most part.
Can we trust the government anymore? I don't think I have ever been convinced that I can trust the government, so there is no 'anymore' for me. Not in a tin foil hat kind of way, but politicians lie. It's just what they do. I don't like the fact that it took a month and a half to get an answer from our AG on the constitutionality of using a drone on American citizens on American soil. I find that very concerning.
