Begun, the drone wars have
Shouldn't we have blown this drone up by now?
From FoxNews -- Iran claims it is recovering data from downed stealth drone, while U.S. officials are concerned that the drone's secrets — such as its radar-deflecting paint — could be cracked.
I thought the standard procedure for downed aircraft which contain sensitive information-gathering or advanced design technology was to destroy it before the enemy can learn anything from it. Why haven't we blown this thing up yet? You know the Russians and red Chinese are there already paying who knows how many dinars for a thorough look-see.
The Russians can invent their own stuff, but we know the Chinese would rather steal our stuff and reverse engineer it than develop their own. Do we need Chinese drones flying over Hawaii, maybe Alaska, or being launched off their one pathetic carrier near our mainland? Do we need the Russians taking our technology, making fleets of drones, then selling them to our enemies?
Blow this thing up already! Who cares if a few dozen Iranians, Chinese, and Russians get blown up with it....so much the better.
Cookie bonus, from what movie was the title of this post paraphrased?
