    This "caterpillar-sized robot" could lead to real-life Transformers, or, with nanotechnology, to shape-shifters like the T-1000 in Terminator 2: Judgment Day (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0103064/).

    There is a good article in this month's Air and Space magazine (Smithsonian Air and Space mag) on drones...

    One thing I was surprised at... the FAA has not totally worked out airspace rules for drones in the USA yet... due to a variety of reasons.

    Yes, they are being used in some area... NO they are not flying all over big cities with large airports... at least not yet.

    I recently watched an interview with the Head Legal Council for the Pentagon. He was a typical sleazy, double talking lawyer. He was asked “since it is legal and acceptable for the U.S. to take out high value targets in other countries with our drones is it OK for other countries to do the same to us?”

    He did the usual lawyer two-step and did not answer it.

    Cutting edge technology is great as long we are the only ones to use it. But as we all know, that doesn’t last forever.

    Well... If the USA has the largest military by a HUGE margin (as in we could almost take on the whole world at the same time and stand our ground)... well let someone else send a drone over us... and see what happens to the drone.
    It is a dog-eat-dog world when it comes to countries trying to control other countries... no easy way to assert one-self other than to have the bigger stick.

    Now It seems to me if the USA wants to be SAFE... we need a govt with a STRONG attitude about "Dont mess with America'...
    Softies (like the current administration that bows to Muslims)... are the laughing stock of the world... why would one not take pot-shots at America.
    OTOH: Put a hard nozed Texan in there who noes not put up with ANY crap out of any tin-horn dictator... and the USA will be free and safe.

    Which USA do folks want to live in... one that is afraid and in danger... or one that is strong and free? PS: do not just give me an answer... vote your answer...
