“The emancipation of the working class will only be achieved by the working class itself.”

Not only is the U.S. military flying drones over the Middle East, they are also flying them over the U.S. And one of them, a Navy surveillance drone that was being tested, crashed in a marsh on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. The drone was 44 feet long with a 116-foot wingspan and weighed more than ten tons.

What if it crashed in a populated area or on someone’s house? U.S. drones certainly fire missiles at homes and cars in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Yemen, massacring countless people.
