Did you watch the Oscars? Why?
The country is going to crap and you spend your time watching mindless sh*t!
Okay my rant is over…time to get serious.
While the MSM has everyone diverted to lesser news…like a stolen jersey or who pays protesters or how many Tweets some people attempt there is something happen that could be a game changer in the War on Terror….but you were too distracted to care.
I have written many times here on IST about the American drone program (a search for IST will give one all the posts) used by the US military to fight their wars….I understand their use as it saves lives of the troops involved in the conflict but I also dislike their constant use for the drones cannot differentiate between combatants and civilians….as a result we have killed more civilians than bad guys and the numbers expand.
I point this out because it appears that ISIS has developed a drone program to be used as the one for the US……
Islamic State fighters are launching an ever-wider assortment of deadly drones, even as their UAV factories come under heavy attack.
Grenade launchers, kamikaze bombers, flying decoys, eyes-in-the-sky, and soapbox-derby dinosaurs: as the Islamic State group loses neighborhood after Mosul neighborhood, it is still dispatching a wide variety of UAVs on deadly missions.
“Over the last two months, coalition forces have observed about one adversary drone every day around Mosul,” a U.S. Central Command official told Defense One.

Then once this program was discovered they started with world predictions of doom for the rest of us…..
“I can verify that the enemy has used drones to release grenade-sized munitions,” wrote U.S. Air Force Col. John Dorrian, chief spokesman for the Combined Joint Task Force, Operation Inherent Resolve, in an email from Baghdad. He went on to say that Iraqi forces closing in on Islamic State’s last-remaining high-population stronghold in Iraq are dealing with them.
Right now their, ISIS, program is far from sophisticated but each time they are employed the more they learn about their operation……
As they (however they are) say…it is only a matter of time.
