First "Robot" Ground Attack Squadron Sent to Iraq.

The US Air Force is sending a whole squadron of remotely controlled "predator"-type aircraft to Iraq (and some to Afghanistan). These ones are almost as big as a modern jet fighter and can carry lots of munitions.



You might be interested to know that the
Pentagon is also spending billions of dollars on
Robot soldiers too. The technology reminds me
of the Terminator movies. Let's just hope the
Pentagon doesn't invent an artificial intelligence
command and control computer in order to
"co-ordinate" all these nasties !
