Sounds like a great way to waste tax payer money in an effort to keep an obsolete AFB open.

I bet it's considered a stopgap measure until they can put up a 4,000 mile long wall. Morans.

They already keep a helocopter hovering 24/7 at the derby line.

Replace Canada with Mexico and they might have actually have a plan.

Don't be silly, the North American Union will pass soon, there will be no separate Canada, U.S., and Mexico. The North American Union constitution will also give us peasents less rights than U.S. or Canadian constitutions. We will have a pay scale similar to what Mexicans get now.

Another idea that is full of fail.

Why do we all have to be so paranoid? Too many people have been watching Canadian Bacon and are over-reacting.

Will it cut down on movie stars migrating to Congress/Govenment? Seems the original Predator pretty good at stopping most of them down.

It can detect terror!

Prolly a proof of concept for use down south later. See if it works well enough to do large-scale.

I wonder if the drug cartels can get SAMs?

How much does one of these super-deluxe RC planes go for? It has to be some serious $$...

True, the tankers at Grand Forks AFB are past their prime. They have pulled all of GFAFB's nukes out of the ground long ago and it is now all about the Magic City aka Minot AFB.

After watching the Gangland episode on Los Zetas I think we're looking at the wrong border.

it was fenians from New York that attacked Lower Canada in 1865(?).

Does not approve.

Why don't they use these drones to patrol the coast of Somalia, blowing up pirates.

Win.
 
2008-12-03 02:38:39 PM
Oh no, just think what would happen if some Canadian weed got into the US! Our children might spend a night watching videos on the Internet!
 
2008-12-03 02:39:05 PM
Good. Damned Canadians with their beady little eyes and flappy heads.

Flappy headed ho's?

Not cool. No where in TFA does it mention if they will be armed or not. Given that this is a Law Enforcement Agency, chances are they will try for the most arms they can cram into those things until one goes screwey and kills a bunch of innocent people picking lynblumstens or some such flora.
 
2008-12-03 02:39:36 PM
Ah nothing like a good misuse of taxpayer dollars.

Or is smuggling considered "terrorism" now?

Scopa: Why don't they use these drones to patrol the coast of Somalia, blowing up pirates.

Then the ninjas will say "they're taking our jeeerbs!"

If they don't want the poutine, send it to my place. Those frostbacks might be backwards on a lot of things, but that one they got right.

I love it, but the newest addition of adding turkey stuffing to the mix is a bit much...

hell yeah, poutine is top notch

It isn't just to keep weed from coming South. The Canadians want us to keep cigarettes from going North, especially through the Indian reservations.

As far as the border with Mexico is concerned, we've got millions of landmines we aren't using, so we can just use those to secure that border.

The culinary equivalant of having unprotected sex with a stripper behind a truckstop in Eastern Quebec.

You're scanning the wrong hard drive there. I mean, as assnoying as Celine is, I think it's the south you should look over.

We really need to make our rednecks less uppitty.

/Yes, 'chicanos' would, in a way, be our mexican rednecks

give me doughnuts: It isn't just to keep weed from coming South. The Canadians want us to keep cigarettes from going North, especially through the Indian reservations.

When I was in NYC smokes were more expensive than up here. I thought Clinton taxed the hell out of tobacco across the country. Bill not the other one. I bet the other one had something to do with it though. Ya' know, the cigar thing and all.

God I hope they are armed drones, Canadians scare me.

NOOOOOOOO! THE POUTINE MUST FLOW!

Predators being used to detect and capture aliens... sounds like a movie plot.
