The real advantage of unmanned aerial systems is that they allow you to project power without projecting vulnerability.
- General David Deptula
There is no war, then, without representation, no sophisticated weaponry without psychological mystification. Weapons are tools not just of destruction but also of perception... affecting human reactions and even the perceptual identification and differentiation of objects.
- Paul Virilio
To call the frame into question is to show that the frame never quite contained the scene it was meant to limn, that something was already outside, which made the very sense of the inside possible, recognizable. The frame never quite determined precisely what it is we see, think, recognize, and apprehend. Something exceeds the frame that troubles our sense of reality: in other words something occurs that does not conform to our established understanding of things.
