Droneheads

Several of you have implied in the Fray that I'm obsessed with drones . This is really quite unfair. If you want to see true obsession, visit Wired 's military blog, Danger Room , where you can read more than 300 posts about unmanned aerial vehicles, or unmanned aerial systems, or whatever the hell the Pentagon (or is it the CIA?) is calling them now. The DR crew doesn't just follow the drone war in Pakistan from afar, as I do. They go straight to the Pakistani press .

Take a quick stroll through their recent archive and you'll see that they're way ahead of me in tracking the revolution. For example: Pakistan already has spy (not killer) drones. The Russians are buying drones ... from Israel . Iraq wants drones, too.

I could spend all day at that blog. But that might be a tad, you know, obsessive.
