Exactly. Drones are for war. An America that employs them over its own soil, in the name of public safety, resembles more an ant hive – where real drones live – than a free society. We need a citizens’ uprising to stop the drones before they ever fly. And if they do fly, then it is time to resort to Krauthammerism and for Americans to defend their airspace as they would their homes.

But before you shoot, remember this … drones are moving targets so you’ll have to lead them.
