Mellow out, they're just R/C planes with cameras.

Yes because Al Quaida couldn't possibly buy radio controlled planes with video cameras off the internet.

So do you go by Mr. Little or will simply Chicken do?

Apparently not, if we had to give them ours.

Done right, this could be a genius move. If we make the GPS unit be in constant contact with our sat system, and we can find whoever bought them on the black market to within three feet. Hell, that might be built in already.

Yup, but you never know, they might gain some technical aid in building their own from these.

In other news, Azerbaijan has acquired licenses to produce Israeli drones. Ya'know, the same Azerbaijan that's in a frozen conflict with its neighbour Armenia. If that's not blatantly making money off of others' misery, I don't know what is.

I am not in favor of this plan.

Why do we continue to help Pakistan, when we know full well they are playing both sides? (Adm Mullen even admitted this yesterday)
 
2011-04-21 04:50:43 PM  
From wikipedia: "A single Raven costs about $35,000 and the total system costs $250,000. Link (new window)

So that's a little gift of upwards of $21,250,000 to our good friend, Pakistan. Good thing we're not having any money troubles over here.
 
2011-04-21 04:51:01 PM  
DNRTFA indeed.

Assumed it was about the predator drones we've started bombing Libya with.

yeah they still still sound crazy and tarded. the fact that the "elites" on both the right and the left of our politic system are tards when it comes to foreign policy has nothing to do with secret muslimism. we're stuck in a cold war mentality, which isn't that useful for the threats we now face.

They don't even have running water or toilets. Somehow I doubt their ability to photoshop a weaponized drone. But don't let me stop the panic. I love a good panic as much as the next guy.
 
2011-04-21 04:55:08 PM  
Other possible explanation. Oh yea, we just 'sold' these to pakistan, so 'they' can shoot stuff at the FATA.

Aka, oh yea, no worries folks, it's totally the pakistani's raining the hellfire down on the weekly AQ anger-jerk now.

We are a silly country, but give us some credit.

They've just inducted their first squadron of jets based off of Chinese tech, the JF-17 or something like that. Most likely they'll fall apart in a year, but don't tell me the Pakistanis can't put together military goods when they put their mind to it.

Meh. Just RC planes with cameras; although, I wouldn't mind having 40 of them. I could buzz the neighbors or the local schools.
 
2011-04-21 05:02:05 PM  
we're selling arms to the enemy so we can take the proceeds and fund political opposition in central america, right?

R/C planes with GOOD cameras.

Pakistan is an ally. Their government is weaker than ours at controlling its own borders, but they are an ally. They use our spy drones to find the enemy and we use our BETTER drones to blow them the fark up.

It's so the ISI can relay our damn troop movements,...you wait.

I'm no fan of Obambi,...but if we are not getting out this year as promised,...we will likely see an uptake of ambushes,..because of this silly move..

This is why we need to raise taxes!
Otherwise there won't be any money left over to feed the poor.

I know it is clear that millions of dollars worth of R&D alone was just given away to the weakest of "allies," you apologist traitor. I hope, to paraphrase Douglas Adams, that you are the first against the wall when the revolution comes.

Hey there. The headline is the submitter's way of implying that Pakistan will keep 45 drones while giving 40 away to Al-Qaida.
