Drone technology takes off

Usually when you hear about drones, it's in reference to an air strike on suspected militants.

But they've also been used by a filmmaker to capture incredible views of mountains in Pakistan.

In Kenya, conservationists hope drones can protect endangered rhinos from poachers.

And some drones are just fun toys. Even if they are difficult to fly.

    It is good to know that the drones are so versatile. The primary goal of drones is to make Muslims behave themselves. But the side benefits like watching rhinos or mountains are pretty cool too.

    I still remember sometime ago I was attending a wedding in a remote Waziristan area of Pakistan. Late in the night while the dancing boys were entertaining the guests as is the tradition we heard a big b last from far away. Naturally everybody put their robes on and drove close to the blast site. We saw only one house was d emolished and people said some 2 or 3 occupants were vaporized. So we went back to our party and got drunk.

    Next day on the news it was declared that the $ atanic drone had v iolated the pious air space and land of Pakistan and k ille d some innocents. People said the people in that house were very nice men who spoke A rabic. Soon after that I got my visa to us a so I packed up and left. Drones are e vil – d own d own us a.
