Remote Control War
Remote Control War movie was released Jun 07, 2011 by the PBS Video studio. Indian Springs, Nevada. Every evening a group of ordinary men and women say goodbye to their families, and go to war. They bomb, and they kill. Sometimes their vehicles crash, but the pilots always go home to their families. They are remote control warriors. The current campaigns in Iraq and Afghanistan comprise the world’s first robotic war. The U.S. fleet has grown to 7,000 robots in the air and 12,000 on the ground. Robots only have the ethics that they are programmed with, and human/robot wars raise many ethical questions. Does the ability to kill anyone, anywhere with a robot amount to lawlessness? Very soon all sides will have access to remote control weapons. Robotic war is here. From today’s CIA drone strikes to the next generation of armed autonomous robot swarms, killer robots are about to change our world.

National Anti-Drone Day in San Diego Makes Statement

National Anti-Drones Day in San Diego makes the statement, “No drones in our backyard!”

No Drones I-15 OverpassDemonstrators gathered at several San Diego locations to call attention to the manufacture of drones and their use around the world and over our communities here at home.

San Diego is the Drone Capitol of the world, manufacturing more drones than anywhere else on the planet.  Of the 35 billion dollars San Diego gets in defense contracts 12 % are related to the manufacture or support of the drone industry.

Over the last several days, demonstrators gathered in front of buildings of the corporate leaders of drone production and on freeway overpasses of the I-5 and I-15 to call attention to this new weapon of mass distruction, their indiscriminate killing of innocent civilians in war zones, and their threat to civil rights here at home.

Today is the last day to join in this effort to make the statemement:  ”No Killer Drones in Our Name!” and “No Drones in Our Backyard!”

Goto National Anti-Drone Days-San Diego for a schedure of events and update.
