The increasing use of drones for civilian and military surveillance calls for citizen involvement in understanding how pervasive this technology has become. Check out the following links to understand how we must question the moral, legal, privacy, safety, and financial aspects of drone technology.

US PREDATOR DRONES (Video of controllers in Nevada killing in Iraq and Afghanistan)
|READ BELOW BEFORE OPENING THE ATTACHMENT.
The female drone controller is actually flying the aircraft. Her flight instruments screen is located in the upper left of the lower central large monitor screen. The other screens are views from the drone itself.
The control booths or rooms are made in Garland, TEXAS by Raytheon …..
For non-pilots, these controllers are in Nevada and each is flying a drone on the other side of the world thousands of miles away, in the combat zone in Iraq and Afghanistan.. Their left hand is on the throttle controlling the drone’s engine. The right hand is flying the plane. All the buttons used to fly the drone are located on the joystick. The controller never removes his or her hand from the throttle.
Kill a Taliban then go home for lunch or dinner. Imagine how big the communication pipe has to be to pump all the data necessary to perform these complicated tasks through it on the other side of the world in REAL TIME. This is modern warfare.
