For CIA drone warriors, the future is death
By Pepe Escobar

Forget the iPad; the ultimate icon of fetishized commodity is the drone. Israelis do it – and sell them like hot cakes. Mexicans do it – to patrol their side of the border. Brazilians wanna do it – to patrol the Rio favelas. Saudis wanna do it. Uzbeks wanna do it. Everybody’s singing: Let’s do it. Let’s fall in love (with the drone).

Furthermore, abandon all hope those who enter (the doors of misperception): Afghanistan is now officially just a lowly, troop-infested sideshow to the AfPak war. The real thing is an illegal drone war against Pakistan.
