June 12, 2012 journal, a Drone is down, the military promised to stop bombing houses. I did a painting some time ago with a big free of charge across the face of it and it means the best things in life are free as is life, air-water-hope-health-love-memory-wisdom and knowledge, vision-taste-smell-feel and hearing, our 5 senses in life to name a few. Both heaven & hell are also free of charge. You can choose Heaven or automatically go to hell. The man that got it got it free of charge and here's what he wrote to me-Barry Cline, Sav. "FREE OF CHARGE! LOVE IT!!!!! It is hanging over our mantel in the living room." If this is God's favorite people then I would not want to see his non favorite people. "Why do you call me, 'Lord, Lord,' and do not do what I say?" Gospel of Luke 6;46. Why am I doing this? A Drone is down. A Hawk Predator Drone crashed in Maryland "The Navy was all set to roll out its upgraded spy drone, a 44-foot behemoth. Then one of its Global Hawks crashed into an eastern Maryland marsh on Monday. It's the latest setback for the Navy's robotic aircraft. An unarmed RQ-4A Global Hawk went down during a training exercise near the Naval aviation base at Patuxent River, Maryland on Monday, CNN reports. Local news has footage of the wreckage. No one was hurt except the Navy's pride. (well I guess you can guess what I am thinking about now) But ouch, that pride. As AOL Defense reports, Thursday marks the debut of a new pimped-out Global Hawk at Pax River, as part of the Navy's newest iteration of its Broad Area Maritime Surveillance Program. BAMS, as it's known, uses a Global Hawk outfitted with Navy-specific sensors to spy on a whole lot of ocean and beach. In this case, the Navy was set to debut two new, powerful 360-degree radars aboard its Global Hawks, with range in the hundreds of miles, as part of a $1.16 billion contract signed in 2008. It's unclear if the Global Hawk that crashed was actually carrying the new radars. Even if it wasn't, the drone programs run by Naval aviation look increasingly star-crossed. In April, technical glitches forced the Navy to ground its robotic Fire Scout helicopters despite praising their performance in counternarcotics operations to the high heavens. Then the Navy decided to spend another quarter billion dollars on an upgrade. (there was a movie made entitled hangman also hang made after the Nazi regime). A more ambitious Navy drone program would, for the first time, allow an armed drone to take off and land from the deck of an aircraft carrier. But the so-called X-47B won't be ready until 2018 at the earliest. For now, the stealthy, batwing-shaped robot makes people who see it fear an alien invasion. Don't ask about drone submarines, since they're an immature technology. Drones crash, and however embarrassing this current crash is, the Global Hawk is a robotic workhorse. But it didn't take long for the Twitter-borne drone watcher @drunkenpredator to rechristen BAMS "Bits of Aircraft in Maryland Soil." Is it Americans that commit these atrocities or is it some heartless foreign godless reptile?

They were chased by NATO and Afghan forces. A firefight broke out, and the coalition troops called in an air strike. The next day, the villagers brought the results of that strike to the provincial capital: 18 corpses, including five women and seven children. It was the latest in a series of disturbing incidents involving air strikes on civilian homes. In the last six months, coalition planes have bombed these residences 10 times. "Seven resulted in civilian casualties," Lt. Col. Jimmie Cummings, a NATO spokesman, tells Danger Room. So now the commander of coalition forces has issued a new order, severely restricting an air war that was already near its all-time low. Airstrikes on civilian homes are not allowed -even if the residences are being used by militants. The question is: can the new directive bring down civilian casualties, while still allowing troops to fight effectively? Coalition and Afghan "forces will continue to conduct combat operations against insurgents who use civilian dwellings," Cummings says. "But we will not use air-delivered munitions against civilian dwellings unless it is a question of self-defense for our troops on the ground."
