5 Incredible Drone Crashes Caught on Camera

Drones sales are zooming in the USA, as are applications to the government for permission to uses them to spy, interfere with firefights and investigations, and to get great aerial footage for films and commercials. It's like Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four has come to life, only he called them "helicopters," which seemed infeasible. He also called Nielsen-equipped televisions and surveillance cameras "telescreens," but it's clear he meant smartphone and laptop screens. Americans love and crave their "screen time." We probably can't live without it without breaking down. By texting, everything is recorded in writing even when the receiver is in the room to answer, and there's video evidence, too. Orwell would be proud or mortified that it all came true as it had in Buddhist Burma/India (where he lived) and imperial England and its colonies.

Arming drones to kill by remote control
Drone Warfare (Medea Benjamin)
An international people's movement opposes attack and surveillance drones, since their increased use following the 9/11 [hoax] in the U.S.

The U.S. government has been deploying drones in the geopolitical Middle East, South Asia, Africa, and at home through any police department that wants them.

The U.S. military and CIA initially used drones mainly for surveillance, but now these remotely controlled armed vehicles are routinely used to launch missiles on human targets in countries where the United States is not at war -- including Pakistan, Central Asian lands, Somalia, and Yemen.

The majority of people killed include countless noncombatants and even American citizens in covert missions.
