The article presents the author's views on the perceived threat to the U.S. forces deployed in Iraq from aerial attacks by the unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and the preventive measures that can be taken. The author refers to enemy UAVs being shipped into and used in Iraq against the U.S. forces there. He views that funds should be allocated for exploratory, preventive measures against this potential threat, rather than waiting for the threat to mature and having to fund reactive plans.
