Harper Spends 1 Billion on Missile Drones

January 16, 2013

Peacekeeping everyone into total submission. Harper plans to put robots with weapons into the sky. Does it matter to you that someone stole the election here and is now arming the sky above us. Re-writing our laws. Permitting our resources to be had internationally for next to nothing. Come on people, Wake Up! We’ve lost our country! A dark future awaits us if we don’t restore democracy in Canada and around the world.

Harper government intends to spend $1 billion on armed drones for Canadian military

The Conservative government approved last month the issuing of a request to aerospace firms to provide details about the types of drones now available. In its request to the industry, the government pointed out the need for the unmanned aircraft to operate in the Arctic. The aircraft should also be able to carry precision-guided munitions, the government said.

Blackwater trained Canadian troops without permission, Canadian troops and police were trained for two years by the international security contractor formerly known as Blackwater without the permission of the U.S. State Department.
The revelation is contained in U.S. federal court records, unsealed in North Carolina as part of a $7.5 million settlement of criminal charges against the company now called Academi LLC.
“The Harper government has had a standing contract with the company since 2008.”
It’s paid millions of dollars going back to 2006 for the specialized training, given to special forces troops and some police officers.
