Drones are more useful than the old U-2s, for instance, because they can hover, allowing time for their sensors to map a facility's interior as was done over bin Laden"s compound and even to record the movements of people inside a lab or military installation. These activities are carried out in secret because they are illegal and must be kept hidden from us Americans and as many others as possible. The victims, however, know what is going on.
It's a dangerous situation because unlike our childhood bullies, these bullies have guns. Not to mention nuclear bombs. Barack Obama with his "kill list" in his pocket, and Bibi Yetanyahu, carrying his red-lined graphic, as well as a few CEOs and some generals, need a refresher course in what they were taught in kindergarten about how to get along in the world.
Back in kindergarten they would be in for some serious "timeout." A kindergartener is taught to "use your words" when he wants something (like oil) that a classmate has. If he hits, then he has to sit on a stool for a specified period until he can say, "I'm sorry," and can remember to think twice about engaging in aggressive behavior the next time he wants something.
A kindergartener is not allowed to push someone around just because he's smaller and has one arm tied behind his back (Cuba, Haiti, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and Iran come to mind). He is not allowed to knock down someone else's tower even when the other kid knocked his over. If he can't find out nicely why the other kid did it, he should report it to a responsible adult (like the United Nations) and let the grownups handle it.
And lying on the floor in full temper tantrum mode to get things to go your way, doesn't work.
Frightening the other children by telling them a big bad bogeyman is hiding under their beds waiting to grab them when Mommy and Daddy turn out the light might warrant a trip to the principal's office.
In school, ongoing failure to observe these rules comes under the category of antisocial behavior.
We need to make some serious moves before these psychopaths destroy the planet.
