Is the drone program a hoax?

Be the 1st to vote.

As part of my research into all military propaganda (which is everything reported by the media about the military), I came to wonder if the drone program itself is fake.

There aren’t too many anywhere pondering this thought, although I came up with this amusing drone hoax site that may not be far off or a controlled opposition hoax:

The false site, claiming to be the UK homepage of General Atomics, mimics a real web page, but features the slogan “leading the targeted killing revolution” instead of “leading the situational awareness revolution”.

Elsewhere, the phoney homepage describes how Predator and Reaper drones, used by the US military in Afghanistan and Pakistan, are “being used to kill thousands of innocent people and terrorize hundreds of thousands more”.

via US drone maker targeted by anti-war web hoax – Channel 4 News.

So much of what we are told about the drone program sounds phony. This video starts it off:

I don’t believe this guy on many counts. For one, soldiers don’t talk about “kills”, period. Not only is it anti-human and an unnatural way to behave, but it must be classified. It would do no good for the military. Now, if this is a hoax, then it could be used to

  • scare the enemy (if there really is one) and
  • scare Americans (into thinking these could be used on them) or
  • to help ferment a large-scale anti-American sentiment to help divide and conquer the world

The whole idea that a missile can be surgical and take out one or two people out of a group is just silly, especially when being viewed via a video screen in an American suburb.

So what’s more likely? Are drones wiping out wedding parties and innocents?

Are there really 30,000 drones flying over the US? Are there really micro drones? To me, they are as likely as mini-nukes, and most likely only found in Hollywool.

Although I guess small aircraft exist, are they really weaponized by the military?

Any way you slice it, there is so much we don’t know, which of course, is what we’ve been saying all along with most everything we are told. Sad but true.

    Apparently, drones are the big thing right now. What does it mean when I DESIRE a grenade launcher so as to shoot down a drone? I would like the feeling of the heft of a grenade launcher on my shoulder in order to shoot down a m/f drone. Has anyone noticed how the show ‘Homeland’ has slipped in the drone situation? So casual. Also, how Muslims are the terrorists?

    The exact opposite is actually the case. Am I the only one to notice?

    They’re certainly a good tool for the bullshit. Cut-out the human factor.

    The continuous drip of drone stories in recent years clearly shows there’s an agenda. They love the one where a
    wedding party gets blown off a hillside – give me strength.

    They’re an invisible enemy in the sky that can wipe people out just like that….mmm….we’ve heard that one before…Tim, your hunch is probably right; regardless they’re used to deceive us.

    The story we’re told ( usually in child-like terms) is that the Pakistani president went to see Obama a couple of weeks ago and asked him to stop the drone strikes. Then at the weekend a drone took out a key terrorist…

    So the Pakistani president is going to script, talking up the drones and giving them credibility and seeming like he cares about his country, and then the War on Terror gets a headline , the drones get more credibility and an excuse for continued drone narrative.

    This pantomime is complete bollocks.
    And they certainly don’t need to complicate things and waste time and money with real drones when they can just tell the story through the television.

        A drone:- 1
        a STINGLESS male bee (as of the honeybee) that has the role of mating with the queen and does not gather nectar or pollen
        2
        : one that lives on the labors of others : parasite

        And, apparently, they can make drones tiny, like a mosquito, perhaps.

        Can anyone read my mind? Perhaps we don’t even need a grenade launcher. Maybe we just need a fly-swatter. Just don’t swat the real things, okay?
