The future is now!

 

The age of low-end drone warfare is officially upon us, and nowhere is this reality being made more apparent than along the Gaza-Israel border. Weeks of violent protests by Palestinians along the fenceline have given birth to 'incendiary kites' as a robust asymmetric warfare tactic that we detailed in a previous piece. Now Israel is putting hobby-like drones to use to knock down those flaming kites, and even to release tear gas on protesters from across the fenceline.

Automated warfare has progressed from tactical precision strikes to swarming, crowd-controlling skirmishers.

 

Imagine drones like these being used on protesters in more developed nations.


I always imagined the future as a time of more reason, empathy, and peace, not less. It's time for a change.
