Skynet? Ogre?

Nope, US forces in Afgahnastain are flying unmaned remotley controled
aircraft (ie not just missles) into live fire comabt for the first time.

Yea they have been going into hot spots for the last 6 years, but this is
the first time they have been fitted with offensive wepons and used not
soley for inteligence but to mix it up in a fight.
