The Aviationist reports on this new video recently uploaded to Facebook, which allegedly shows a group of angry Afghans stoning a downed MQ-1 Predator drone. It struck me as a sign of things to come across globe.
The Predator has no markings, but that's the usual thing in clandestine missions, says David Cenciotti. The MQ-1 is primarily used by the United States Air Force and Central Intelligence Agency.
I can imagine a near future in which angry people do the same thing everywhere, taking down and angrily destroying their own government's flying spies as the world descends into the robot apocalypse.
Clearly, I really need this weekend.
