Drones are a 'paper tiger', a distraction, and an intentional waste of money. This reminds me of the 'virtual fence', which was a stall tactic, an intentional waste of money, and an alternative to the effective double fence.
We would be far better off with 2 men in old Hiway Patroll Planes, BiPlanes,(or simple unmanned aircraft w/surveillance). One man to fly, one man to operate a sophisticated camera, and relay communications to ground forces.
We could have at least 15 times more effectiveness for the same amount of money. Or, better yet, put some of that money into fences, and boots on the ground. That would hurt the Cartels far more than some unarmed Drones. The Democrats, and Pro Amnesty love drones, they are inefficient compared to other alternatives, and yet make the uninformed public think they are doing something about our wide open border.
