Actually, a drone base is the most easiest to be "destroyed". Any reasonable "EMI" will do it. I suspect that it was how the drone was "forced" down by the Iranian.
Military action based on drone alone can only go so far. It may work great in doing it to some low tech countries.
American will never understand this. What if a Russian general comes right out to tell the world that any American action on any Russian interest will be responded with bombs in Washington DC, New York City, Chicago, LA and the Mountain View which is at the heart of the Silicon Valley covering from San Francisco to San Jose, and most of military bases in US (which will cut off the rest of the supply line to the Oversea bases), all at the same time, I wonder what can those US politicians do about it. Nothing. Man. they probably start sucking their thumbs.
The Russian are not stupid. The Chinese are the most "calculating" people. They know when and where to respond. American still don't really understand the real meaning of the Sun Tze doctrine. American tend to play game with fire and one day they may get burned badly. One day, it may happen and by then it will be too late.
The West keeps thinking their culture is the only culture that world should adopt. They tend to push aside those (India, Iran, Turkey, Egypt, China) who used to "own" the world before. Now, these "old rich" start to wake up and the "new rich" are panic. What if takes is one dumb mistake, the "new rich" may not be able to abstain their status.
Do you know that as of today, 61% of the American debts are owned by the Federal Reserve. We can cheat as much as we are allowed. One day....
Just imagine that I borrow a $1M from you today and pay you back tomorrow by printing a few dollars more. Do you think this relationship will last ?
Let's sidetrack it a little bit.
The North Korea is going to test their Satellite launch soon. Instead of sending it over the Japan Sea, they choose the South East path, toward Indonesia. If you plot their path in an exactly opposite direction (going North West instead) , you will not be surprised to notice that it is directly going to Washington, DC. From North Korea to Washington DC takes only some 6000 miles if it goes over the North Pole. I bet that the Chinese know that well too. What does it mean. If we make one dumb mistake, the North Korean may just choose to do that. What do the North Korean have to do lose. They have nothing before and nothing after. But, what will happen to the great USA. Without New York or Washington DC, we practically have nothing. The country will almost cease to exist. Who is dumber ?
