American Drones Comprimised

Hackers have successfully infiltrated the American government’s favorite tool for discretely murdering people from a distance: unmanned aircraft.  A computer virus infected the computers controlling America’s Predator and Reaper drones, exposing a major security flaw with these remotely flown weapons.

The malicious software seems to resist detection and removal, and could very well be a highly advanced attack orchestrated by foreign agencies, not unlike the Stuxnet virus which successfully delayed Iran’s nuclear efforts.

These drones in the sky, controlled remotely by computers and radio waves, are like sitting flying ducks, ready to be taken over and used for nefarious purposes. (Although what’s more sinister than American’s being slaughtered by their own government?)

Governments are investing billions upon billions into these state-of-the-art weapons, but what’s the point if control can so easily be stripped. All you’re doing is giving more advanced arms to whoever controls the digital space.

So, rather than spend more on war, why not channel these funds into humanitarian causes. For the cost of one of these pilot-less killing machines, you could dig wells for hundreds of thousands of people without access to clean water. Think about it for a second… which route would ultimately bring a more secure world?
