The scariest part though as far as use against civilians is the concept of the "drone swarm". A short video on that here: US Military Released Micro Drone Swarm From FA 18 Super Hornet Jet. 2 minute video, 3 parts: release of drones, video of drone maneuvers on video screen, and then a video of the swarm from the ground. They make a rather eerie sound as they swarm.
Finally, here is where DARPA is taking the offensive use of swarms and cooperative behavior of military aerial robotic vehicles: DARPA's System of Systems (SoS) Integration Technology and Experimentation (SoSITE) program. Shows a coordinated attack by a set of 3 UAVs, a fighter plane, and a "mission truck" - basically a flying "aircraft carrier" loaded with UAVs and cruise missiles. (This video is almost 4 years old - this stuff is already deployed.)
Personal note: I find this sort of stuff a lot more interesting than the junior high level of politics that the MSM focuses on 24/7.
