The first carrier launch of the X-47B has got America's war fans rubbing their hands in glee.
The launch of the latest drone variant marks "an important step in the expanded use of drones by the American military."
Isn't that great news?
Here's a weapon that makes American war-planners reckless and lazy, galvanizes America's enemies, vastly increases the ranks of those enemies, and the fact that a successful carrier launch presages an expanded use of drones is passed off as a good-news story?
America is NOT heading for a happy place...
