State and County governments across the country are slashing budgets for schools, healthcare, and infrastructure as the Obama administration continue to funnel local funds towards financing U.S. wars for foreign resources and dominance.
While the frontier for U.S. military occupation is firmly footed in the Middle East and Africa, the Obama administration is orchestrating an even firmer military presence in the United States at the community level. The department of Homeland Security has been helping counties across the U.S. to acquire unmanned ShadowHawk drones similar to those being used in U.S. led assaults in places like Yemen, Somalia, Pakistan and the Congo.
While students are protesting the use of State funds for juvenile prisons vs. education and rehabilitation, executives in Montgomery county, Texas and Cook county, Illinois are busy leading the charge in committing public funds to acquiring drones provided by Vanguard Defense Industries.
According to County officials, acquisition of these Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) are for law enforcement purposes only.
Can anyone guess what fruits this venture between the military industrial complex and government at the local and federal levels will bear?
