Joshua Zemanek's curator insight, October 2, 2013 8:37 PM

I find it almost scary that China, the most populated country in the entire world is replicating U.S. military drones. They also have the largest military in the world by far. I would take that kind of personally if China is almost taking the U.S. ideas for their own military benefit. Good thing they're the U.S.'s ally, or else their would be a major dispute between the U.S. military and China's military. It reminds me of Iran shooting down the U.S. drone and trying to find out how to make one.
