    Claim: Many countries around the world could have armed drones in five years. More realistically, this is likely to happen within ten.

    Good. When everyone is on the same page, same playing field...we will have peace in the world. Just like the gun ownership debates.

    Not for attacking each other (that's so 19th-20th century). But for attacking their own citizens and maintaining power. That should be fun in unstable countries.

    "There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs." - Kung fu Monkey

    Naah. That never works -- it just winds up with somebody going back in time and assassinating the inventor of the time machine.
