When I first saw this Tom Tomorrow cartoon, I thought it was funny, but I didn’t put it in a post because it was satiric, exaggerated and not to be taken literally.  After all, flying American killer robots have only killed people in wedding parties in foreign countries, and then only occasionally and unintentionally.  On the other hand it is U.S. policy to target mourners at funerals for those killed by other drones.  Click on U.S. again bombs mourners by Glenn Greenwald, whose link is in my Best Blogs menu.
