CALL IN THE DRONES – WHERE ARE THEY AND WHY ARE THEY ONLY USED FOR DROPPING BOMBS ?

I just read this story about how firefighting efforts at nuclear plant are being halted dew to risk of radiation exposure for humans.

I am glad to hear that officals are taking all precautions to prevent exposure to radiation and general danger to human beings but who and how can the fires be put out ? The United States and other nations around the world have spent billion in the last 40 – 50 years developing unmaned flight vehicles or drones, which we see on TV and in the news regularly being used in miltiary operations. We are told how efficient they are in hitting targets with bombs and killing people but never hear about them being used in rescue missons or to help people. Can these drones not be used in some capacity to fight these fires and save lives ? I may be over looking something, so can someone please explain ? These kind of things don't make much sense to me. All of our governments, especially mine, spend so much money and time plotting to kill one another and investing so much in technology to end life, cant some of these technology be adapted to save lives ? Where are the drones ? Call them in !!!

Also please be careful of scams regarding giving money to aid the quake. Here is an interesting op ed piece I just read which suggest that giving money might not be the best thing to do.

For news from Japan here is link to NHKs english site.

I have been speaking with friends in Japan on a daily basis since last Friday and I am sure eveyrone is watching all the shocking images and stories in the news. Hopefully it will all end soon but in the mean time we can only watch and pray.  If we allow ourselves for a second to think positively amongst all this horror, events like these help everyone to look at ones life and think about the things that really matter. Reprioritizing our lives is something we can all do more of.

My thoughts and prayers go out to all of my many life long friends, family, acquaintances, and many victims in Japan. Please stay safe.
