The Path is lain out and as detailed here in a previous article, a week ago. The European Banker owned Militarist Dictatorship is clear about it, - Drones should be deployed across 'civilian skies' throughout the EUROPEAN ARENA and FUTURE GLOBALIST BATTLEFIELD by 2016.
So what you need is a break-down on how a Drone-Pilotless Total Battlefield Management Plan looks like.
Remember civilians are the target now. Since the end of WWII, a long time already 90% of victims of war are civvies. You are the future target, because you are soft, but can be presented and spun as legitimate hard 'battened down' military targets. But is there such a thing as true 'Non-Accountability'?

Serving 'Reaper' Drone, lethal strike craft on patrol in Afghanistan; part of the DARPA IXO Hi-tech  'Total Battlefield Management' training environment.

Extracts of Long article

"Since 2007 the RAF has operated 39 Squadron, a detachment of five US-built MQ-9 Reaper aircraft at Kandahar Airfield. While America has a sprawling UAV programme targeting Islamic militants everywhere from Pakistan to Somalia, British Reapers have only ever been used as part of the official combat mission against the Taliban over Afghanistan.

The vast majority of the 38,500 hours of operations flown by the RAF Reapers have been in intelligence-gathering rather than in attacking targets. Most of the 35 RAF Reaper pilots are based at Creech, an airfield near Las Vegas, where they control the aircraft via satellite as they fly over Afghanistan.

But the two-second delay between a pilot moving a joystick in Nevada and an aircraft responding in Afghanistan is enough to cause a crash during take-off and landing. Crews in Afghanistan control 'launch and recovery’ through direct contact with antennae on the aircraft. Half an hour after take-off, control of the Reaper is handed to a crew in Nevada; half an hour before landing, it returns to the crews on the ground in Kandahar


"It does, however, seem plausible that risk-free, long-distance strikes using UAVs could insulate the Western public from the human toll of war. If we can kill with such ease while protecting Western lives and avoiding the costs of deploying troops, will the bar be lower for governments to make war? Already, the creep towards a permanent state of war, via drone strike, can be seen. This year alone, the Obama administration has conducted drone strikes against al-Qaeda and its allies in Afghanistan, Libya, Yemen, Pakistan and Somalia. The Ministry of Defence candidly warns of these dangers in its report: 'We must ensure that by removing some of the horror, or at least keeping it at a distance, we do not risk losing our controlling humanity and make war more likely.’

These speculations become even more complex with the Frankenstein fear that, as UAVs become more advanced, they will be able to launch weapons without human input. There is a danger of an 'incremental and involuntary journey towards a Terminator-like reality’, the paper warns, and Britain must 'quickly establish a policy on what will constitute “acceptable machine behaviour"

"Keep watching the Skies" - 2016 onwards should be quite an eyeball spinner.
