Kentucky man arrested for protecting his home from drone

A Kentucky man shot down a drone hovering over his daughter, who was sunbathing, and was then arrested after being charged with first degree criminal mischief and first degree wanton endangerment. The owner of the drone claims he was only taking pictures of a friend’s house, but William Merideth says he had a good, sound reason to take the action he took: “He didn’t just fly over (my property). If he had been moving and just kept moving, that would have been one thing, but when he come directly over our heads, and just hovered there, I felt like I had the right.” “You know, when you’re in your own property, within a six-foot privacy fence, you have the expectation of privacy. We don’t know if he was looking t the girls. We don’t know if he was looking for something to steal. To me, it was the same as trespassing.” “I didn’t shoot across the road. I didn’t shoot across my neighbor’s fence. I shot directly into the air.” Mr. Merideth nailed it! The unknown, accompanied by the fact that the drone was intentionally and repeatedly being flown where it had no permission to fly, motivated him to defend […]

Hamas Drone Laden With Explosives Shot Down Over Israeli City

In one of it’s most blatant attempts to inflict massive civilian casualties on Israel, Hamas sent a drone laden with explosive over a heavily populated neighborhood of the Israeli city of Ashdod. Fortunately, the Israelis were able to shoot it down:

An enemy Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV), apparently laden with explosives, was shot down by the IDF near the port city of Ashdod Monday morning.

The interception caused a strong explosion to rock Ashdod and the air raid sirens went off, at around 6:30 a.m..

The Navy is reportedly looking for remains of the UAV.

The IDF Spokesman said that the UAV was shot down by a Patriot missile and that it fell in an open space along the Ashdod beach.

Mordechai Weisman, a resident of the Beit Shemesh area, told Arutz Sheva that the downing of the UAV “was accompanied by a very loud and long jet-like rumbling sound” that could be heard dozens of kilometers away.

“I just saw and heard massive column of smoke rising from Tel Aviv / coastal area,” he told Arutz Sheva’s Tamar Yonah. “It sounded as loud as a large jet engine even from here near Beit Shemesh. Like nothing we’ve seen before. Looking at the photo, I would say it is coming from the Ashdod area. And just for the record, it was really scary watching and listening to that. The image does not at all do it justice…”

Here’s a tweet from Avital Leibovich,  a former IDF spokeswoman:

The Nobel Peace Laureat’s killer drones

“The art of war”

The Nobel Peace Laureat’s killer drones by Manlio Dinucci

3 June 2013 

Nobel Peace Prize winner Barack Obama is going all out, but neither he nor any other President of the United States can promise the total defeat of terror, because “We will never erase the evil that lies in the hearts of some human beings.” He announced this in his speech on the “comprehensive counterterrorism strategy.” [1]

Despite the setbacks suffered by Al Qaeda and its affiliates, “the threat today is more diffuse,” from Yemen to Iraq, from Somalia to North Africa, and in countries like Libya and Syria. The extremists have gained “a foothold” following the “unrest in the Arab world” (and not as a consequence of the wars unleashed by the U.S. and NATO). The struggle of good against evil thus continues under the enlightened leadership of the President and under a new strategy definition: from “unlimited war on terror,” it switches to a series (in fact unlimited) of “targeted lethal actions” with the aim of “dismantling specific networks of violent extremists who threaten America” ​​(the United States, translator’s note).

These actions will be increasingly deploying unmanned drones, whose use is “legal” according to the US and international law, given that the United States is leading a “just war of self-defense.” The use of drones helps to “save human lives“, as planes and missiles are less accurate and can cause a greater number of victims. Now, however, “targeted lethal action” carried out by drones and special forces “outside of war zones” will be subject to a “strong oversight“. But, Obama says, “we must keep information secret.” Thus, nobody will know what will be the actual use of drones and special forces.

 

The “strong oversight” announced by Obama has, in reality, the goal of transferring the control of “lethal, targeted actions” from the CIA to the Pentagon. In over a decade of “war on terror” it is essentially the CIA that has carried out these drone and secret agent operations not only in Afghanistan and Iraq, but also in Yemen, Somalia and many other countries not officially at war. However, through this arrangement the CIA took up too much space, encroaching upon the Pentagon’s turf. The Pentagon’s Joint Special Operations Command, which performs parallel actions to those of the CIA Command, now wants to have control over all drone operations towards which the CIA will contribute by identifying targets, both human and material. Shifting control into the hands of the Pentagon also applies to the upgrading of the drone fleet, with the goal of replacing remotely controlled drones with completely robotic ones.

On May 22, the day before Obama’s speech, Northrop Grumman performed the first flight of the MQ-4C Triton, which it is building for the U.S. Navy: the drone with a wingspan of 40 meters (greater than that of the Boeing 737 airliner), can fly without refueling for 30 hours over 18 000 km, identifying automatically through its sensor various types of ships and targets to hit. The U.S. Navy has ordered 68, part of which will surely be deployed to Sigonella or another base in Italy.

This same Northrop Grumman, six days before Obama’s speech, on the aircraft carrier George HW Bush, began “touch and go” maneuvers (landing and immediate takeoff) of the X-47B: a “smart” drone robot (as large as a F/A-18 Super Hornet) that, once launched, will independently reach and hit the target and return to the carrier.

Thus, the Nobel Peace Laureat will be able to continue “saving human lives.”
