Oh stop bashing the poor misunderstood things. They're quite capable of successful operational deployment! It just depends on how you define the mission. They would be simply breathtaking in the right roles, such as:
Target Drone - They can draw off fighter opposition and force both ground and air elements to waste time and ordnance trying to shoot them down. Given the amazing random-number direction changes built into the navigation system, they're well-equipped to evade missile attack.
KamiKaze - Highly effective ground attack strategy. If they're going to crash anyway, may as well take out a target. It might only need slight changes to the automatic landing profile, no new approach method is needed so a huge cost-saver there.
PsyOps - Relentless buzzing attacks can destroy the morale and fighting effectiveness of poorly-rested and enemy combatants. This little-used effect can be worth a regiment of troops! Program costs can also be offset by posting advertisements on the drones, which will be seen by a large audience of consumers during repeated passes over the target.
Area Denial - Given the high percentage of "pork" involved in the construction of the drones, anywhere one crashes will be "unclean" and off-limits to Arab opponents. This can be a knock-on effect for KamiKaze operations, or a specially-targeted strike on enemy headquarters, assembly areas, or recreation facilities.
Politicians never have the imagination for military matters...
