And the drums keep beating, in America's favour of course.

Yeah right!

500 hundred years from now historians are gonna call this time the beginning of the Drone Era.

Guess they won't be airing season 9 of 24 any time soon!

I prefer America's beat to those of China or Russia, and I would rather be on America's side if things went south.

On meeting between Russian Deputy Defense Minister Antonov and PLA Deputy Chief of General Staff, 30th May 2014.

Antonov: "Today we tell everyone on various matters relating to international stability, you people can see China and Russia have no differences, I just want to confirm that Russia and China will have Everlasting Friendship.

With Russia and China to work together.. , the world can sleep peacefully."

America is not the only country that have unmanned vehicles.

Commie China regime and Russia was bullying the community organizer 'Obama'.

Sure... tell people its the USA trying to force Japan to become the enemy of China. But look at what is going on... China, drunk with prosperity, is starting to go after territory. How often in history has any nation just stopped after getting what they want.... especially when there was no opposition. I'll give Politicians credit for one thing.... they understand power.... they understand that power gone unchecked will force its will on everyone. So just bending over and letting China have its way is a big mistake. Japan, the Philippines, Vietnam, the USA and other nations need to counter China's recent aggressive moves.

And WHO had to buy the Senkaku islands recently to bolster their claim again? Takes two to tango, my friend.

It's becoming comical. It's a done deal. What did Tibet buy that pissed off the Chinese?

And the trade off is safety for Japan and other Asian countries.

Along with the drones, I think every street corner should be equipped with CCTV monitors. And while were at it, purchase new smart appliances that can turn themselves on and monitor your usage, while sending info to Google and intel groups. They will connect perfectly with electrical smart meters. Duct tape, one of Americas best inventions, is perfect to affix the I-phone to one's head. The xtra radiation will enhance brain power. I'm almost sure of it!

The commercial applications for the Global Hawk RQ-4A advanced next generation avionics, GPS/INS navigation system are proven, Yamaha RMAX Type 11 is the result of over 25 years of research and development, Yamaha should be allowed the opportunity to exploit the technology.
