  2. Vanuatu is not an island. It is a nation comprised of dozens of islands. This is footage of the Yasur volcano on Tanna Island.

  3. And afterwards the drone did a detour to murder some innocent civilians.

    How many innocent, brown-skinned people does the US slaughter every year with these weapons of mass destruction?

  4. MaryM: It's a quad-copter drone--a remote-controlled plastic toy. Read the write-up and get a grip. The word "drone" doesn't always mean a multi-million dollar military tool, and the drones you're fixated on don't hover like this.

    You can buy a quad-copter for $100. The one used here starts at $400; you can buy them in hobby shops and all over online.
