Property in ghetto part of Washington D.C. should be cheap. One could buy a vacant lot and turn it into a kind of memorial similar to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial (that monument has all the names of Americans who died in the war). But this memorial would contain names of all the civilians killed by drone strikes.

       Better to manufacture sanitary ware for public conveniences to allow patrons to suitably express their opinion of their enemies.

       Possible locations: private land around Hain's Point, National Arboretum, Aquatic Gardens or River Terrace.

       It will take us a long time to catch up to the "collateral damage" done by conventional means to date. But I understand, drones are the new black.

       What Curtis LeMay said.   


       // civilian drone strike victims //   

       All the drones we have seen so far are military, and they seem oddly reluctant to allow anyone else to have go with them. So, if you know where we can get one of these "civilian" drones, there's cash money waiting.

       ^ cellphone in a RC model airplane, mounted pointing the camera out the little windscreen.

       Would this memorial be unmanned?
MaxwellBuchanan, Mar 07 2014

       Of course, but it would be kept under surveillance from a bunker on the other side of the planet.   

       // RC model airplane //   

       We envisaged something more like a Cessna 172 ... say 150kg for pilot and passenger, strip out seats, panel instruments, radios, nav aids - maybe another 100kg .. that's 250kg for stores, minus the weight of mount points and release mechanism.   

       FLIR might be heavy, though.

       Ah yes because "proper" military manufacture all their stores in-house, grow their own food and raise their own funds and breed their own recruits in-house with no support from any aspect of Civilian society.   

       What exactly are they fighting for, again?

       // "proper" military //   

       ... have uniforms, ranks, a command structure, rules and regulations, discipline, and by and large are answerable to sovereign governments.
