US military has been making use of drones for a long time, something which is hardly a secret anymore. Despite a number of ethical and legal problems involved with it, the US military continues its drone strategy without any hesitation. The worst part of it is that it seems to be expanding it s domestic strategy regarding drones.


Imagine you are going on a road in US and suddenly, a drone appears in the sky and starts monitoring you, without you having committed any crime whatsoever. While this may seem something from an Orwellian nightmare, it is not. It is actually reality with the US Air Force having been practicing tracking and targeting civilian cars along the highways in New Mexico.

According to reports, during the ‘training’, Air Force pilots were tracking a white SUV and another car along the road. The whole tracking thing was just a ‘training mission.’ But that raises the question as to what this training was being done for.

US government has repeatedly expressed its ambitions to launch drones domestically. This would mean that US citizens would be monitored, perhaps even targeted, with the help of drones launched by the US government. The worst part about the whole drone thing is that since the government is in persistent denial and the US President is not ready to take responsibility for drones, they somehow fall off the legal grid.
