Can We Stop the Drone Hysteria?
There are otherwise intelligent people who lose their minds when they hear the word “Drone”. Drone has become to the 21st century what the atomic bomb was to the 20th century with much less justification.
Here’s a hysterical Defense One article about Japan’s “Drone Fleet” making the rounds.
For decades Japan has been the world’s playground for design innovation. But now it may become ground zero for the future of something far more hostile: military drones.
Ominous music plays.
The article then goes on to describe “a huge drone buildup” along with the claim that “Japan is not so quietly building a huge drone fleet”.
So what does this huge drone fleet buildup consist of? Two drones.
According to one of Japan’s leading economic dailies, the Nihon Keizai Shimbun, Tuesday, the Japanese government is looking to deploy two high-altitude, long-range drones to be used with an existing satellite-based monitoring system.
The drones will cruise over designated areas above waters at an altitude greater than 15 kilometers — a height where they will be unaffected by weather — for up to 72 hours.
That sounds absolutely terrifying. Those drones are Global Hawks. But what of the huge drone fleet that will darken the skies?
“For the period 2014-2023, our forecasts show that they [Japan] are looking to build three Global Hawk drones, in addition to missile detecting UAVs, to deter possible threats of nuclear attack from North Korea and the advancing military strength of China,” the analyst, who requested anonymity to speak candidly on issues related to agency clients, told Quartz. “ They [Japan] are progressing their indigenous design and development capability at a rapid pace and could actually meet their objectives even before fiscal year 2020.
That’s from the same HUGE JAPANESE DEATH DRONE FLEET article.
So we’ve got an anonymous analyst claiming that Japan is planning to build a huge drone fleet consisting of three Global Hawk drones and some drones that will detect missiles over the next decade.
That’s the most terrifying news since never. Japan’s terrifying drone fleet, which might come into being around 2020, will consist of three armed drones.
There’s more going on here than just clickbait. The far-left and the Paultards have calculatingly fed drone hysteria until many people just stop thinking when they hear the word ‘drone’.
Throw in drone and you can build a whole article about Japan’s murderous militarism based on a plan to have three armed drones by 2020.
