This striving for a drone army reminds me of this trinket. A small golden beehive which belonged to the first female Pharaoh of Egypt, Hatshepsut. It is written she would sting herself with the bee, in order to manipulate people with the same pheromones that a queen bee uses to control other bees. Used to cause her people to be willing to go to extreme and violent lengths to "protect" their queen. Sounds like something that would interest our military. Does anybody else see the irony with our military servicemen whining that operating the "drones" is boring?
