So, the very much unmilitary management team at Green Hills Software salutes the cause of death and destruction. To my knowledge, the most real military service any of these people have seen is sitting in front of their computer, playing video games, sort of like Drone Operators, you know.
Where profits are biggest, there will Dan, Craig, Jack, Jeff, Chris, Jason, Dave and Dave, be, panting for profits of the largest kind.

Drones could soon be delivering everything from post to drugs using a vast international network, a U.S. firm has claimed.
Matternet, a Silicon Valley startup, has already trialled the drone network in Haiti and the Dominican Republic, where they were able to fly for six miles carrying a 2kg payload.
The firm now hopes to expand with an ambitious plan to replace existing delivery systems and set up a global network of 'drone routes' for the gadgets, which can automatically fly themselves.
