    The US has all the parts to do this. The 2020s (just 3 years away) will be exciting to say the least.

    Depends on whom you kill.

    Besides, who wouldn't want to go out from one of those bad boys than dying in a nursing home from rectal cancer and you can't remember who your kids are?

    You know, if drone technology keeps gaining at the pace it has been, eventually manned fighter aircraft will go the way of the dodo.

    One of the problems I can see in drone use is that the other side will learn to disrupt it. The idea of a fully autonomous AI with weapons bristling is more than a bit scary.

    Agreed. But, in order to have a pilot, you limit the aircraft to the kind of maneuvers it can do (no more than 10 g), as well as have a lot of systems that aren't required for the aircraft or weapons systems themselves, they are there to keep the pilot alive.
