Drones; The new scourge of technology
Chitral: The latest reports about drones being used to target oil pipelines in UAE and Saudia should not be taken lightly. Only second to nuclear weapons, drones in the hands of terrorists whoever they be and wherever they be, is a new threat spectrum faced by the world.
The way technology is sprinting and getting out of hands and it’s potential for being used by terrorists should be a cause of genuine worry for the entire world. If ISIS, TTP, Al Badr, Boko Haram and the like can get their sophisticated weapons from out of thin air, drones falling into their hands cannot be ruled out too. The world must worry about such an eventuality and preempt it with all seriousness. .. CN report, 14 May 2019
