The games being played around the world - one side just as bad as the other side. A comment I made about it on a poll taken by Avaaz:

One comment I made on the poll https://www.avaaz.org/en/2014_member_poll_d/?cl=4247394707&v=37186:

text section at bottom of question 3 ) suggest a campaign we should add to this list! The more specific, the better!

I put:

A Campaign of education = as it is not any single government system that is good or bad - it is how that government acts for the benefit of it's people/environment or does not - the evil of capitalism is not just an American thing - look at any country any ideaology of how things are supposed to be run for the benefit of all in any country/state - why do these systems not work to promote health and prosperity for ALL in any society/state/country? The causes are all the same - where ever one looks = Greed of the few manipulating government for their own benefit irregardless of whether their actions are healthy or poisonus to the rest of the economy and to the environment locally and world wide. These Powers That Be - in government and in business are not nameless/faceless and it is their actions and inactions which are destroying our world through pollution poverty and war. These people in every corner of the world need to be identified to the public along with their negative actions and influence - they must be removed from power of any sort for the whole world to benefit for the whole world to be able to start making healthy change like cheap clean energy for ALL and the stopping of pollution that is poisoning our Air Soil and Water. The public/population needs to be involved in government and government and business need to SERVE the best interests of the people/society/environment/world.

"The drone was flying at about 4,000 metres (12,000 feet) and was virtually invisible from the ground. It was possible to break the link with US operators with complex radio-electronic" technology, said Rostec in a statement.

What is happening in Ukraine is wrong ( ALL OF IT ). But now we have this additional crap going on. Will the next drone war be fought over who controls the air-waves?

This east/west conflict is something that has been going on for over 2000 years since 280 BCE when Rome began expanding into Greek colonized southern Italy. This cultural dichotomy led to the Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox divisions of Christianity along with the division of the Roman Empire into the eastern and western halves. As Germanic nations including England and subsequently the U.S. became the heirs to the legacy of Rome, Russia became heir to the legacy of Byzantium. Despite internal western conflicts with Napoleon, the Kaiser, and Hitler, and the Russian transformations from feudalism to communism to capitalism, the ancient cultural east/west divide maintains a modern geo-political manifestation that continues with the EU's eastward expansion.

Thank you Leo for historic info.

This east/west conflict

In other words - SOSDD

It's Us against Them.

The age old game of manipulation of populations - for the benefit of the obscenely wealthy on either side.

If, Russians (and others) can take control of drones, that would be interesting.

interesting yep - don't pile money into building drone death machines - nah - build a stronger controller and steal them right out of the air. If a re-tasked/captured drone kills you is that still friendly fire?

Good points. If press release is true, the drone effort is compromised. Russians likely accessed drone shot down in Iran.

It's a good thing to compromise - lets hope it gets compromised to total useless status.
