US Central Command Scrambles to Field Electronic Anti-Drone Weapon

US Central Command Scrambles to Field Electronic Anti-Drone Weapon:

The US Central Command based in Tampa, Florida, wants to expedite the deployment of electronic weapons to strike down enemy drones, Scout Warrior reports.

“Theater has asked for a solution, so we are looking at what we can apply as an interim solution,” a US Army colonel told the publication October 3. The official did not specify which theater in particular had made the request, but he said the military is actively cooperating with the private sector to develop and commission the weapon.

The Army reportedly seeks an electronic warfare weapon that could be used by infantry to fill the capabilities requirement.

The Pentagon Wants Drone ‘Swarms’ to Support Infantry

And what if all those battle field technologies will be used domestically (as planned by TPTB).

Who will then be able to resist the New World Order???

“It is the system of nationalist individualism that has to go….We are living in the end of the sovereign states….In the great struggle to evoke a Westernized World Socialism, contemporary governments may vanish….Countless people…will hate the new world order….and will die protesting against it.”

– H.G. Wells, in his book, “The New World Order”, 1940

The Pentagon Wants Drone ‘Swarms’ to Support Infantry:

DARPA asked robot-developers for a way to let small infantry units deploy swarms of 250 or more robots in urban areas.

In the near future, US Army and Marine Corps infantry squads could march into battle behind swarms of hundreds of flying and crawling drones.

At least, that’s the plan. On October 12, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency—the Pentagon’s fringe-science wing—asked robot-developers to submit ideas for tactics and technologies that could allow small infantry units to deploy swarms of 250 or more robots.

The swarms must function “in built-up areas up to eight city blocks in size over mission durations of up to six hours,” according to Dr. Timothy Chung, the program manager.

Trump Has Killed More Civilians with Illegal Drone Strikes in 9 Months Than Obama Did in 8 Years

Non-interventionist President Trump at work, making America great again.

More “change we can believe in”!

*****

Trump Has Killed More Civilians with Illegal Drone Strikes in 9 Months Than Obama Did in 8 Years:

While the mainstream media focuses on anything but the current state of U.S. intervention in the Middle East, the Trump Administration is breaking records by accumulating a horrific number of civilian deaths.

Former President Obama earned the nickname of “Drone King” when he dramatically escalated the use of drone strikes, while also downplaying the number of innocent civilians who became “collateral damage.” In the two years that his administration devoted to publicly spending millions of taxpayer dollars to fight the Islamic State group, the estimated civilian death toll ranged from 2,300 to 3,400, according to Airwars, an organization tracking deaths in the war against ISIS.

President Trump has been in office for just 9 months, and he has already surpassed Obama’s murderous record with estimated numbers as high as 4,500 civilian deaths.

A Mysterious Virus Has Infiltrated America’s Drone Program

A Mysterious Virus Has Infiltrated America’s Drone Program:

There’s something deeply wrong at Creech Air Force Base, the notorious home of America’s drone program, where pilots remotely order US Reaper and Predator drones to unleash destructive missile strikes on unsuspecting villagers in Yemen, Libya, Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan and other war zones.

Less than a week after the Department of Homeland Security advised all federal agencies using anti-virus software created by Kaspersky Labs to remove the programs from their systems immediately, Ars Technica reports that two weeks ago the Defense Information Systems Agency detected mysterious spyware embedded in the drone “cockpits” – the control stations that pilots use to control the deadly machines.

Investigators have been unable to determine the virus’s provenance, or even if it was intentionally introduced to the drone systems, or the result of an accidental infection. But perhaps the virus’s most perplexing feature is its passivity. Instead of hastening away reams of classified information, it has simply logged keystrokes.

More curious still, the virus has resisted all attempts to remove it from the Air Force’s systems.

MQ-9 Reapers add to arsenal with first GBU-38 drop

MQ-9 Reapers add to arsenal with first GBU-38 drop:

CREECH AIR FORCE BASE, Nev. — Airmen from the 432nd Wing/432nd Air Expeditionary Wing and the 26th Weapons Squadron, Nellis Air Force Base, Nev., made history earlier this week, by employing the first GBU-38 Joint Direct Attack Munition from an MQ-9 Reaper.

While the JDAM has been around since the late ’90s, the munition has just recently been validated and now proven for real world engagements marking a significant step in the Reapers’ joint warfighter role.

“We had a great opportunity to drop the first live GBU-38s in training,” said Capt. Scott, 26th Weapons Squadron weapons instructor pilot. “The GBU-38 is a weapon we’ve been trying to get on the MQ-9 for several years now and we had the opportunity to be the first to drop during training.”

Connecticut Set To Become First State To Allow Deadly Police Drones

Connecticut Set To Become First State To Allow Deadly Police Drones:

Connecticut could become the first US state to allow police to use drones equipped with deadly weapons if a bill opposed by civil libertarians becomes law. The bill, which was approved overwhelmingly by the state legislature’s judiciary committee on Wednesday, would ban so-called weaponized drones in the state but exempts police and other agencies involved in law enforcement, the AP reported. The legislation was introduced as a complete ban on weaponized drones but just before the committee vote it was amended to exclude police from the restriction. Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy, a Democrat, was reviewing the proposal, “however in previous years he has not supported this concept,” spokesman Chris Collibee wrote in an email.

The U.S. Dropped an Average of 3 Bombs per Hour Last Year


The U.S. Dropped an Average of 3 Bombs per Hour Last Year:

According to an estimate recently released by the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), in 2016 alone, the Obama administration dropped at least 26,171 bombs in seven different countries.

As even the most pro-administration publications have noted, that amounts to 72 bombs per day – three bombs per hour – every day for the entire year. Unfortunately, this didn’t classify as “violence” worthy of criticism by Meryl Streep and her colleagues in Hollywood.

As noted by the CFR estimate, however, the figures are relatively conservative, meaning the number of bombs dropped by the Obama administration in 2016 may be much higher:

Pentagon: US Airstrike on Hospital “May Have Killed Civilians”

Pentagon: US Airstrike on Hospital “May Have Killed Civilians”:

(ANTIWARAdding to concerns about the civilian toll of the US air war against ISIS targets, the Pentagon yesterday admitted that they carried out an airstrike against the parking lot of a Mosul hospital, conceding that they “may have killed civilians” in the attack.

The Pentagon’s Combined Joint Strike Force said in a statement that they were after a van they suspected of carrying ISIS fighters, and they blew it up in the parking lot of what “was later determined to be a hospital.” The US has previously insisted all hospital sites in Mosul were well known and that they were taking extreme care not to hit civilians.

PETITION: Ban Weaponized Drones from the World

H/t reader sqoudgy:

“The mere mention of ‘Drones’ and their weaponisation by the US jesuit/jew Neocons conjures images of the “Terminator’ movies.

terminator-drone

How can we sit passively as our world drifts into the former fantasy images of the movies.

We jokingly refer to our need for Sarah Connor, but as we discover ALL our so called ‘Civilised Nations’ possess and actively use robot drones to kill innocents all over the world, the question takes on an urgency.”


Ban Weaponized Drones from the World

Due Process? A Drone Was Used To Blow Up A US Citizen Without Trial This Week:

The Dallas shootings have ushered in a very new world for US citizens. For the very first time, drones have been used on US soil to kill Americans without trial or charges. The suspected shooter in yesterday’s tragic killings, US Army veteran Micah Xavier Johnson, was, according to police and press reports, holed up in a parking garage and would not give himself up. After hours of what police claimed were fruitless negotiations with Johnson, a weaponized robot was sent to where he was hiding and blown up, taking Johnson with it.

Get past the horror of what Johnson was accused of doing and think about that precedent for a moment. Is it not chilling?

White House clears small, commercial drones for takeoff

White House clears small, commercial drones for takeoff:

Routine use of small drones by real estate agents, farmers, filmmakers and countless other commercial operators was cleared for takeoff by the Obama administration Tuesday, after years of struggling to write rules that would both protect public safety and free the benefits of a new technology.

The Federal Aviation Administration announced the creation of a new category of aviation rules designed specifically for drones weighing less than 55 pounds. The long-anticipated rules mean commercial operators can fly drones without special permission.
