This opens up so many possibilities, they could loiter on target almost indefinitely.

Interesting! This shows that in the end the U.S will have the capability of sustaining a military operation without humans. This opens up possibilities for defence and air dominance across the globe.

It might be cheaper to skip humans all together as long as we do not need boots on the ground. Of course in a major attack boots on the ground to mark targets are still needed.

The future will be interesting.

This sounds horribly Dr. Strangelove to me.

It is well that war is so terrible -- otherwise politicians whould grow too fond of it.
