Pentagon Announces That Drone Strikes Worldwide Will Increase By 50% In Coming Years


The US military will be expanding their disastrous drone program by 50% in the next four years, bringing the number of daily drone flights from 61 to 90. The announcement surprised many Americans, who did not realize that the government was already sending out so many drones on a daily basis and that they were planning on shipping out even more.

"We've seen a steady demand signal from all of our geographic combatant commanders to have more of this capability," Navy Captain Jeff Davis, a Defense Department spokesman, told reporters during a press conference at Pentagon.

According to estimates by the Bureau of Investigative Journalism over 5,000 people have been killed by US drone strikes since 2004.

These drone strikes will occur all throughout the world, including various countries in Africa, the Middle East, and even some European countries like Ukraine.

Former Military Drone Pilot Brandon Bryant was recently interviewed by BBC about his experience killing people by remote control. After being told that he was responsible for the deaths of 1,626 people, and that he would be hunting down people from his own country, Bryant began to feel uneasy about what he had signed on to do.
