This should be in the video tab, because its a video.  If I wanted to get my news from video I'd go back to the 1980s and sleep with subby's mom.

Do we still call them "UAVs"? I thought the memo said we're all supposed to say "drones" now.

No, they're always to be called unmanned aerial vehicles in paperwork. Expansion to nine sylables reduces the emotional content of the concept. Like post traumatic stress disorder vs shell shock.

 I  just love the  turn of  phrase of drones in the zietgeist of the nation.
Drones, face-less workers that play up to the Dilbert stereotype.
Now, face-less  hardwared remote controlled  surveillance/assasins.
