President Obama will soon apprise Congress of his plan to supply arms with which to equip American-made Italian drones. The current occupant of the White House has a fondness for remote control killing and it seems his fascination has prompted him to extend the range of these unmanned airborne assassins to the European mainland and beyond.
According to a story printed by Reuters, “within two weeks” the Obama administration will proceed with the arming of the American-made drones already sold to Italy. Italy will then join the United Kingdom in deploying the remote control weapons loaded with “laser-guided bombs and Hellfire missiles.”
Until the sale of the weaponry is complete, Italy’s reported arsenal of six MQ-9 Reaper drones sit unarmed and thus useless to the President and his global allies who remain committed to avoiding the tedium of trials of those suspected of threatening international security.
The cost of mounting these sophisticated weapons to the Italian drones runs about $17 million, money that can then be redistributed into accounts funding the cost of policing the globe and protecting the “homeland.”
Reports indicate that West Wing water carriers already have made the trip up Capitol Hill to bring key congressmen up to speed on the President’s ramp-up of the remote control drones we have sold to Italy.
