War 2017: Next Generation Drones Ensure It

Nicholas West
Activist Post

A debate has heated up about the future of unmanned weapons of war. International human rights groups have issued a 50-page cautionary report about the potential for losing control over systems that are increasingly autonomous. Cambridge University issued their warning through a study officially known as the Centre for the Study of Existential Risk, where they warn that one of the greatest threats that humanity faces are "terminators."

While the Pentagon has thus far insisted that automated systems will never supplant human decision making, and various military analysts don't see any type of autonomous machine warfare as likely before 2030, a recent video by defense contractor General Atomics puts a very specific date on the next generation of drone warfare - 2017. This video is very slickly produced and speaks for itself in terms of what type of capabilities of the Predator C Avenger they are selling, but what should be highlighted is their stated goal to reduce the number of humans and increase the number of Unmanned Aerial Systems. Cost-reduction is mentioned as a key component of the flexibility that can be offered.

Also worth noting is the multiple weapons capability of this single aircraft employing a range of missiles, as well as the recently discussed "death ray" directed energy weapon. Lastly, it is disturbing to see the video game feel of this entire presentation, even referring to the fantastic "plug and play" functionality. Does this video convince you that warfare is likely to end anytime soon?

Pretty soon the cost of war will be as cheap as a video game. We already know that human life is cheaper.

And if the human is a psychopathic piece of ass vomit , looking for that serotonin blast from murder. How exactly does that factor into the equation ? As evidenced in many ways throughout history , people with the power of life and death always abuse it. America one big open air live and in color stanford experiement.

The U.S. military machine will never stop until it pillages and dominates the entire world, including U.S. citizens. Everyone is the enemy. We are all "the target." With plans like this for the future it's obvious that peace will never have a chance and it's not even part of the objective to begin with.

Beware of the ever popular FALSE doctrine of pre-trib "Rapture".It has generated billions of dollars for the FALSE evangelical church.
Investigate find out for yourself the truth about it!
Christ shall return exactly as He said He would,not as the false teachers of rapture claim.

From the mouth of the true Christ himself, to his learners . . .

Nation shall be roused against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there shall be famines and quakes in places. All these, yet, are a beginning of pangs. Then they shall be giving you up into affliction, and they shall be killing you, and you shall be hated by all of the nations, because of my name. And then many shall be snared, and they shall be giving one another over, and hating one another . . .

Immediately AFTER the affliction of those days, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not be giving her beams, and the gleamers shall be falling from the heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken. And then shall appear the sign of the son of the human in heaven, and then all the tribes of the land shall be grieving, and they shall see the son of the human coming on the clouds of the heaven, in power and much esteem. And he shall be dispatching his messengers with a loud sounding trumpet, and they shall be assembling his chosen ones from the four winds, from the extremities of heavens, to their extremities . . .

I chose you. You did not choose me.

From the mouth of Christ........translated several times from ancient languages, translated by evil men who use religion to control dumb people. The 'bibles' created by the child raping Vatican, the child raping Mormons, or the British Royal family's (criminals) King John, or the more obscure versions from cult like leaders on TV......all were created to confuse and control.

Which book created by criminals are you using to quote from?


Boy! There sure are a lot of goofballs on this site.

The religions are all the same crap blueprints and BS created by the establishment. We are all spirits on a human journey not the other way around like the organized religion wants you to believe. Christianity, Catholicism, Mithraism, etc and even Greek mythology have that father, son, holy spirit, virgin birth cookie cutter crap. This god and devil was created in order to control humanity and getting them to submit to this illusion and stay in the sheep corral. This rapture, 1,000 yr reign of christ, god, and devil are all fabrications. Any one who believes in all this are deluded just as much as those who believe that a male dog naturally produces milk. This is a world of polarities: heaven/hell, god/devil, cold/hot, night/day, and so forth. Don't you think that the so called church is not profiting off of all these illegal wars. With all these drones that they will use, they will have to lay off all the soldiers by which they are saving more money. The spiritual, devlish whore has to have her cut! Politics and religions are married as one. She has a tight grip on all her pimp world leaders who pretend to serve their own people!!!

Many evangelicals believe that Christ will "rapture" them to heaven years before the second coming and (most importantly) well BEFORE Antichrist and his "tribulation." But Acts 2:34, 35 reveal that Jesus is at the Father's right hand in heaven until He leaves to destroy His earthly foes at the second coming. And Acts 3:21 says that Jesus “must” stay in heaven with the Father "until the times of restitution of all things” which includes, says Scofield, “the restoration of the theocracy under David’s Son” which obviously can’t begin before or during Antichrist’s reign. ("The Rapture Question," by the long time No. 1 pretrib authority John Walvoord, didn't dare to even list, in its scripture index, the above verses! They were also too hot for John Darby - the so-called "father of dispensationalism" - to list in the scripture index in his "Letters"!)
Paul explains the “times and the seasons” (I Thess. 5:1) of the catching up (I Thess. 4:17) as the “day of the Lord” (5:2) which FOLLOWS the posttrib sun/moon darkening (Matt. 24:29; Acts 2:20) WHEN “sudden destruction” (5:3) of the wicked occurs! The "rest" for "all them that believe" is also tied to such destruction in II Thess. 1:6-10! (If the wicked are destroyed before or during the trib, who'd be left alive to serve the Antichrist?) Paul also ties the change-into-immortality “rapture” (I Cor. 15:52) to the end of trib “death” (15:54). (Will death be ended before or during the trib? Of course not! And vs. 54 is also tied to Isa. 25:8 which Scofield views as Israel's posttrib resurrection!) It's amazing that the Olivet Discourse contains the "great commission" for the church but not even a hint of a pretrib rapture for the church!
Many don't know that before 1830 all Christians had always viewed I Thess. 4’s “catching up” as an integral part of the final second coming to earth. In 1830 this "rapture" was stretched forward and turned into an idolized separate coming of Christ. To further strengthen their novel view, which evangelical scholars overwhelmingly rejected throughout the 1800s, pretrib teachers in the early 1900s began to stretch forward the “day of the Lord” (what Darby and Scofield never dared to do) and hook it up with their already-stretched-forward “rapture.” Many leading evangelical scholars still weren’t convinced of pretrib, so pretrib teachers then began teaching that the “falling away” of II Thess. 2:3 is really a pretrib rapture (the same as saying that the “rapture” in 2:3 must happen before the “rapture” ["gathering"] in 2:1 can happen – the height of desperation!). Google "Walvoord Melts Ice" for more on this.
Other Google articles on the 183-year-old pretrib rapture view include “X-Raying Margaret,” "Margaret Macdonald's Rapture Chart," "Pretrib Rapture's Missing Lines," "Edward Irving is Unnerving," "The Unoriginal John Darby," "Catholics Did NOT Invent the Rapture," "The Real Manuel Lacunza," “Thomas Ice (Bloopers),” “Wily Jeffrey,” “The Rapture Index (Mad Theology),” “America’s Pretrib Rapture Traffickers,” “Roots of (Warlike) Christian Zionism,” “Scholars Weigh My Research,” “Pretrib Hypocrisy,” "Appendix F: Thou Shalt Not Steal," "Pretrib Rapture Secrecy," “Deceiving and Being Deceived,” "Pretrib Rapture Dishonesty," "Famous Rapture Watchers," and "Morgan Edwards' Rapture View" – most by the author of the bestselling book “The Rapture Plot” (the most accurate and documented book on pretrib rapture history which is obtainable by calling 800.643.4645).
