how long until terrorists can easily afford a self-driving car to carbomb?
Who cares if it's a self-driving car or a flying drone or just a car.
The bombs are the problem, delivering them somewhere isn't a huge one. They could be using handcarts or rikshas with a bomb, and people would still die.
I didn't know they had an internet connection on the commune.
A more intelligent question is: how long until terrorists learn to hack into self-driving cars and drive them into crowds of people. Defcon presentations have already show how easy it is to hack car electronics and gain control over things like door locks, the gas pedal or the steering wheel.
Terrorists aren't 0daying shit
Boston Marathon bombing was a fucking pressure cooker in a backpack
The better question is "what happens when a selfdriving car glitches and plows over 20 pedestrians on a sidewalk?"
Better question is how long until terrorists start developing long range drones to suicide bomb other countries from random locations in the mid east? Imagine Libyan terrorists sending drones over the Med and hitting Italy, or from Indonesia into Australia.
there is gasoline/propane/oil driven long range UAVs dummie, with wings and shit, just like the military ones, but without the equipment and the speed/reach, yet they can be hacked and upgraded if someone knows his shit
>[War crimes intensifies]
You forgot to add the part were they piss on them and throw their dog off a cliff.
They don't do war crimes since Vietnam unless you count bombing random shitskin with a drone as a war crime.
They're just distasteful shits.
>attach remote bomb to hobby drone
>fly in window, detonate
I'm surprised this hasn't been done yet. Anyone who had played 007 Nightfire will know how annoying and deadly this would be.
Depends on how self driving cars work.
Best case scenario is that they won't be networked at all, making it necessary to have physical access to a car.
And if you're doing physical access to a car while it's stationary there's no real worry since you could do much worse.
If they're networked, god help us.
Luckily they won't be relying on GPS, since that shit isn't impossible to spoof.
You can redirect ships if you want.
It also takes a genius to just put a bomb on the underside of the car then wait until it's somewhere populated.
If you're gonna jimmy a car door you don't need to hack the vehicle at all. Replace the spare tire with a bomb.
An attempt was made, kind of. A few years ago some muslim had this idea and with the help of FBI agents, put together the materials to actually carry this out. However, the 'al qaeda agents' he thought he was in contact with were FBI agents, so the plan didn't end up doing anything.
That's right, FBI. You know how they knew about him? This muzzie asked his local muslim leaders about connections to terrorist groups, and this leader informed the FBI.
Nothing to do with the NSA at all. Again, the NSA proves itself to be USELESS.
They can go to heaven by fighting as well. Suicide bombing is done because it's effective and easy way to do a lot of damage to the enemy. If they could do it another way then they would.
America does war crimes all the time, murder children, raping, killing civilians without a care in the world and torture. America is well known for that and has broken more rules of war than ISIS will ever do.
OP, you obviously don't understand how achmeds work.
The entire reason for them commit acts of terror is to "die for Alllah" so they can reach their fantasy land or "heaven", because they believe some fucktard's retarded version of Islam.
Home made bombs are one of the least efficient ways of mass killing people.
Way, way better to just use a couple guys with machine guns (see Paris attacks, the bombs failed miserably, the gunmen killed over 100 people)
Pretty annoyed if this is true. Soldiers have a responsibility to try and fence mend while abroad. This is fence breaking. If you can't understand why a stricter culture would be deeply offended by drawing genitalia on children then you're an idiot.
And no this isn't a war crime.
>America is well known for that and has broken more rules of war than ISIS will ever do
I don't know about America but when I read your shit here I don't think you know who ISIS actually is
Ah /pol/ teen, so edgy.
But no, the US tortured and massmurdered on every continent on an unimaginable scale.
Your corporate media just won't present it to you on he daily "news"..
It's like when USA spent 2 million dollars to create a ball pen for astronauts, since there was no gravity ink wouldn't be able to work and then they found out russians were using pencils.
Why hack into such complex devices when you just can use a remote car or a dyi drone. Keep it simple.
