Why do we have unmanned drones flying near Iran? If it’s for spying, isn’t that what spy satellites are for?

I do agree that killing 150 humans (how are they targeted? How many innocent?) wasn’t a proportional response so this was wisely called off. Hope wiser heads prevail.

2. With news of US cyberattacks on Russia and drones provoking Iran, wonder how much POTUS is in the loop on such things before they occur - are these rogue actors in the Pentagon doing whatever they please? Who is really running the show?

3. A cyberattack on Russia needs massive data centers, produces planet-warming CO2; building+operating a drone produces CO2. Ordinary citizens being taxed for using plastic bags isn’t enough to stop climate change. Governments must do their bit to rein in wasteful CO2 production.
