Death by droning.
by Stephen Lendman
Perhaps one day they'll arrive over a neighborhood near you. Drones are becoming America's weapon of choice. Domestically so far, they're used only for eyes in the sky spying. Big Brother wants to watch everyone all the time. Don't bet against eyes not being weaponized one day to punish as well as spy. That's how rogue states operate. America is by far the worst and most dangerous. Waging war on humanity is policy. Imagine living in a country run by officials who think war is good. The more the better. Permanent ones. Wage them while pretending it's done for peace. Few question why America is always at war somewhere. Scant attention is paid to the trillions of dollars spent at the expense of vital domestic needs gone begging. Militarism is prioritized. Budgets are virtually open-ended. America's duopoly assures it. Imagine policy makers deciding on which country they'll ravage next. It makes no difference whether Obama or Romney takes charge. Both major parties are in lockstep on all issues mattering most. Corporate empowerment, serving America's 1%, cracking down on resisters, and imperial dominance top their list. Hell hath no fury like an out-of-control hegemon. If analyzed on a couch, it would be called sociopathic or worse. A Washington Post Special Report discussed America's permanent war agenda. A previous article discussed Obama's Disposition Matrix. It called it elevating Murder, Inc. to a higher level. Anyone can be targeted anywhere in the world for any reason or none at all. Obama has final kill list authority. John Brennan is his counterterrorism maestro of murder. His "playbook" makes up rules as he writes them. He designates kill targets. He calls it a strategy to persist 'till the end of time. Last August he said: "What we're trying to do right now is to have a set of standards, a set of criteria, and have a decision-making process that will govern our counterterrorism actions - we're talking about direct action, lethal action - so that irrespective of the venue where they're taking place, we have a high confidence that they're being done for the right reasons in the right way." In other words, kill because we say so. No further explanation. No mention of rule of law principles. Right, of course, is might, whether or not legal, moral and ethical. In his journey into the "Heart of Darkness," Joseph Conrad wrote:

So this is what a "no fly zone" looks like?
There is no doubt that Gaddafi couldn't put any planes in the air, even if any of them survived the attacks on the military installations. So why the big show of power, not unlike the first Gulf War Campaign? Haven't we seen enough Shock & Awe.
The rebels, who are celebrating, who are they? I don't believe that ordinary Libyan's would be so joyous in a situation like this but would be, more like, in a state of fear. The hellish residue that they must surely be taking note of, demontrates beyond a doubt that advanced electronic warfare is being used against their fellow citizens. Do they believe that it is the end of Gaddafi and the beginning of democracy?
This kinda looks like yet another Shock & Awe campaign, except that there is even more destruction and blatant use of experimental warfare. The road to Benghazi is littered with military vehicles, along with cars and trucks, and they aren’t blown apart, but melted in the same fashion as we’ve seen in Pakistan lately. This is criminal activity, just like the terrible exploitation of Afghanistan, Iraq, & Pakistan. In another venue, much like that we have seen in Gaza and Lebanon, except that those particular criminals are laying low untill the dust settles in Libya.
This is the NWO in action, with the media spin being applied on a global basis. We will see no change in Egypt or Libya because it is just too damned inconvenient for the agenda of the global elite.

A leader in global security, Northrup Grumman is also involved with Internet security in cooperation with the commonwealth of Virginia. VITA Interesting...no?
The sun comes up over Naval Air Station North Island in San Diego on February 11, 2011, as the Centennial of Naval Aviation year-long celebration begins. The X-47B Unmanned Combat Air System Carrier Demonstration (UCAS-D), built by Northrop Grumman Corporation, and first flown on February 4, 2011, will be just one of 190 aircraft featured during the Open House this weekend. Several legacy, present-day and future aircraft will be displayed including unmanned systems such as the X-47B UCAS, MQ-4A Broad Area Maritime Surveillance Demonstrator (BAMS-D), and MQ-8B Fire Scout, as well as the manned aircraft: the E-2C Hawkeye, C-2A Greyhound, F-5E Tiger II, F/A-18F Super Hornet, F/A-18C Hornet, EA-18G Growler, EA-6B Prowler, T-38 Talon, Ryan Aeronautical Company's STM Ryan, and Grumman Aircraft Engineering Company's FM-2 Wildcat, F6F Hellcat, F8F Bearcat, TBM Avenger and the HU-16 Albatross. Northrop Grumman's partnership with the Navy is represented by more than 100 years of shipbuilding and nearly 80 years of leadership in designing, producing, delivering and sustaining some 26,000 Navy and Marine Corps aircraft.

The US Air Force today confirmed that it is using a drone named the RQ-170 Sentinel, in Afghanistan. The stealthy unmanned aircraft system is developed by the Lockheed Martin’s Skunk Works division, the same company that developed the F-117 Stealth Fighter. However, the RQ-170 looks like a scaled down version of the B-2 Spirit Stealth Bomber. The USAF confirms that the RQ-170 Sentinel is in development, and is expected “to provide reconnaissance and surveillance support to forward-deployed combat forces”, according to a statement released on 4 December.
