$12,548,710.60

— the cost, per drone, of 10 MQ-9 Reaper unmanned aircraft the Air Force announced Monday that it is buying. Drones are a lot of things, but cheap ain’t necessarily one of them.

WHY... when people are starving and homeless and when our postal system is BROKE, our banking system is broke and our goverment is trying to take away any kind of gun that could possibly protect yourself from those very drones???

The cost of replacing a HUMAN operative behind the controls is a lot more expensive, right ?

Hello, this is cheap in comparison to a new plane. The F35 costs anywhere from $80-100M / unit (not including pilot training).

Nothing like having an expensive Drone spying on you. Its big brother on a terror to restrict your God given freedoms.

Cheaper in cost of human lives. Cheaper than other manned craft.

10 of them for every F-35, I call it definite savings...
