Many happy returns to all the living on the list and to the dead, thanks for all the memories.
Prediction: Drones and robots will be adapted for special purposes within thirty years, but they will probably not make up the main force of any army in the next half century. Drone airplanes and armored vehicles will be used most often to draw away fire from real missions.
Reality: If the first comma was a period and full stop, this one would have been very good. Thirty years would be 2012 and drones have certainly been used, but not to draw fire away from "real missions". As for what military forces will look like in 2032, that blog doesn't claim to know what "reality" will be that far out.
Looking one day ahead... INTO THE FUTURE!
