Unmanned Aircraft Being Touted. Again.

In an article on The Guardians website, they are once again starting the rumor of unmanned aircraft being the only option going forward. Haven't these people seen 'Stealth'!

Personally I can't see this happening anytime soon, especially not in the US where pilots are such revered people (TopGun any0ne!). I do agree that more and more unmanned drones, stand-off weapons, and loitering weapons will be circling overhead, but the military is still very much obsessed with the human-in-the-loop who has to be the one to press the trigger. After all, if an unmanned vehicle (of any kind) kills someone, who is responsible?
