From Horsham\, computer piloted “Reaper” drones are directed to targets thousands of miles away.\n These attack drones carry deadly Hellfire missiles and laser-guided bombs that are fired by computer “pilot” command from the U.S. against people in Pakistan\, Afghanistan\, Yemen\, Syria\, and Somalia.  Drone strikes have killed thousands of people\, mostly civilians and children whose images and faces may have appeared on the pilot’s computer monitor.\n The multi-million-dollar drone command center in Horsham is a central part of the growing network of drone bases\, training sites\, and command centers\, crisscrossing the U.S\, funded by billions of U.S. tax dollars\, and enabling remote-controlled drone strikes around the world.  Millions in federal dollars were appropriated in October 2013 for the PA drone command center\, which is now fully operational and conducting drone killing ‘missions’ from Horsham\, PA.\n\n\n\nMore on drone warfare\,\n\n\n\n‘Meet the Reaper’\, the MQ-9 Reaper DroneUnmanned\, remote-controlled\, 66 foot wingspan\, 4\,900 lbs.\, 230 mph cruise speed\, 1\,150-mile range\, 50\,000 max. altitude\, $53.5 million (FY 2006 dollars)=cost of four aircraft with sensors\, (not counting weaponry and remote-control technology)\nReaper Weaponry: Hellfire Missiles (Lockheed Martin); Paveway/GBU-38 Laser-Guilded Bombs (Raytheon)\n\n URL: END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
