you clearly lack an understanding of drone technology. They can be 'intercepted' remotely given the right circumstances. You are also not following above users clear logic in stating the nature of the deterrent aspect. Are you joking referring to Israel selling to 20 countries? Do you think they are selling even close to comparable relative technology when it comes to those unmanned aircraft? So these other countries buying from Israel are somehow at an advantage how? Other countries looking way ahead of us..... we want them using Israels unmanned aircraft. That technology is ancient to us right now. And as for delivering a nuclear warhead, it aint happening with a drone. And it may have happen from manned aircraft. We are butting heads with Russia right now and Syria is the battleground.
We have fully embraced drones, look up the list of strikes. And the ones we dont know of??? hmm. I think what you're trying to say is you want more help being provided to men on the ground with aircraft like the a10, so go ahead and say that, instead of saying 'scrap manned aircraft'. f'ing ridiculous
