Drones; The War Department's ATM's

Here's a strange article about the Pentagon. On the surface it appears that they do frugal. But they are actually complaining that by Congress paying our soldiers too much they don't have enough money to buy weapons.

Like banks who love ATM's because they don't need a lot of human tellers to do their work, the Pentagon loves drones because they don't need a lot of human soldiers to do their work.

Now here's a debate in which I could take either side. In this cowardly new world killing people on the ground with unmanned lightening from the skies could save the lives of lots of our soldiers. But it could put a lot of our people, like American soldiers, out of work.
