CIA Warily Watches For Threats To U.S. Now That 87 Nations Possess Drones

 

 

 

The age of the drone is here, and U.S. intelligence agencies are warily monitoring their proliferation around the globe.

China uses them to spy on Japan near disputed islands in AsiaTurkey uses them to eyeball Kurdish activity in northern IraqBolivia uses them to spot coca fields in the Andes. Iran reportedly has given them to Syria to monitor opposition rebels.

The U.S., Britain and Israel are the only nations to have fired missiles from remote-controlled drones, but the proliferation of unmanned aerial vehicles has become so prevalent that U.S. intelligence sources and private analysts say it is merely a matter of time before other countries use the technology.

People in Washington like to talk about this as if the supposed American monopoly on drones might end one day. Well, the monopoly ended years ago,” said Peter W. Singer, who heads the Center for 21st Century Security and Intelligence at the Brookings Institution.

What’s worse, clandestine strikes carried out by Washington in far-flung corners of the world have set a precedent that could be ugly.”

Daily Caller Patriot: , Hatchet-Wielding Hitchhiker To The Rescue [VIDEO]

 

 

” The female victim told the reporter that the hitchhiker saved her life, to which TheDC Patriot humbly replied, “That woman was in danger. [The driver] just finished — what looked like at the time — killing somebody. And if I hadn’t have done that, he would have killed more people.”

Because of homeless, hatchet-wielding hitchhiker, none of the parties involved suffered any life-threatening injuries, and the insane Jesus is in police custody.”

Armed Citizen Update

President of Troy, Mo., Bank Pulls Gun, Nabs Masked Robber

 

 ” Maybe the bank robber couldn’t see very well through the holes in h

is mask — the face of Chucky from the “Child’s Play” horror movies — as he walked into Peoples Bank & Trust Tuesday afternoon.

After all, it says right on the door that concealed weapons are allowed in the bank. They’re practically encouraged by the sign: “Management recognizes the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution as an unalienable right of all citizens.”

So when the robber walked out of the bank a short time later with a red bank bag full of cash, maybe he shouldn’t have been surprised that bank president David W. Thompson followed him out to the parking lot. Thompson watched the masked robber get in a Ford pickup parked in a handicapped spot up front, then pulled his Colt .380 handgun and pointed it at the man.

“Sir, get out of the truck,” Thompson, 58, recalled demanding. “You’re not going anywhere.”

And when the man put his hand in his jacket pocket, as if he had a weapon, Thompson scolded him again.

“You don’t want to go there,” Thompson said. “This will end badly.” “

 

 

Pizza Store Owner Fatally Shoots Would-be Robber

 

Robbery not allowed

 

 

 

” Who robs pizza joints? Normally, that’d be more of a rhetorical question, but one would-be thief in Indiana helped to shed some light on that for us. The answer to that question is: incompetent ski mask-wearing thieves.

According to local reports, 30-year-old Freddie McCoy of Richmond, Indiana, attempted to rob Mercurio’s Pizza. We’re a little bit rusty on our Italian, but we think that “Mercurio” roughly translates to “We’re packin’ heat!” The store owner at Mercurio’s, Terry Padgett, drew his gun and fired on the would-be robber.

The robber was hit a total of three times. McCoy fled and made it to the sidewalk before collapsing. The police showed up and hauled McCoy off to the hospital, but unfortunately he passed away as a result of his injuries.”

   Courtesy or Riehlworldview we are treated to another example of the citizens taking better care of themselves than we come to expect from the “professionals” .

   Especially when it comes to the effective use of firearms. Has anyone ever noticed that a large percentage of police shootings involve the discharge of dozens or even scores of shots ?

   On the other hand , most civilian self-defense shootings typically end with less than a handful of shots being fired .

   We here at YouViewed applaud this young man for his courage , his fortitude and his aim . Well done . Good for him . Good for US .

   ” Sounds like the perp may have learned something, too. First, a woman knocked at the door. The boy didn’t recognize her, so
he didn’t open it. That’s when the perp started to break in. The boy took his siblings upstairs, armed himself, then fired when he saw the man who entered the home had a gun.

    (police officer) Holmes hailed the
teen’s actions and his parents for
teaching the kids to never open the
door to strangers. “

More Government Moonbattery

The EPA needs to be abolished forthwith .

  “In case you are wondering why EPA agents need so many guns, this should help explain. The power-drunk agency is now extending its jurisdiction to include ditches and gullies:

Lawmakers are working to block an unprecedented power grab by the Environmental Protection Agency to use the Clean Water Act (CWA) and control land alongside ditches, gullies and other ephemeral spots by claiming the sources are part of navigable waterways.”
