1. Endless Wars for Resources? Or Renewable Energy?
The Race for What’s Left, by Michael Klare describes intensifying struggles among industrialized nations for access to oil, clearly with the full intention of industrialized nations to burn up as much of it as possible. Klare calls for a crash plan to develop renewable energy sources and other basic materials. A dramatically urgent program to cut burning of fossil fuels is needed, not only for peace but to stop global warming.
In spite of this, the US government is bent on using its military to gain and hold access to oil resources worldwide. The drone has a unique role in this drive for control because, unlike any other weapon, it can monitor the lives of individuals and groups for days on end and kill by remote control at a moment's notice.
