The Dawn of The UCAV

AP News is reporting that the new "Reaper" Unmanned Combat Air Vehicles will be deployed to Iraq.
"The Air Force's 432nd Wing, a UAV unit formally established on May 1, is to eventually fly 60 Reapers and 160 Predators. The numbers to be assigned to Iraq and Afghanistan will be classified."
The dawn of the UCAV is here. Though the Reaper has a primary role of air to ground combat, we will see air to air combat aircraft in the near future...if we don't already have classified aircraft with that capability. Pretty Sci-Fi, when is Sky Net going to determine that humans are a threat?
