Democrat Obama is now terrorizing North Korea with Nuclear Powered Drones. See

These bombers cost us $3 billion each and have flight costs estimated to be $135,000 per hour. The total trip from Missouri to South Korea and back cost us $5.5 million. That's why we are so poor; we CANNOT HAVE GUNS AND BUTTER. The Democrat-Republicans proudly proclaim that they have NO DIFFERENCES on foreign policy, so there is no difference between them as the primary goal of capitalism is maximization of profit, with the most profits being from munitions and oil, the latter of which China, a neighbor of Korea, has plenty. The US killed 3 million Koreans from 1950-1953, in a failed attempt to invade China, which had a revolution in 1949. Some 36,000 Americans died in Korea. The US again tried again to invade China in its war against Vietnam, killing 3 million Vietnams, 1 million Cambodians, thousands of Thai and others, and 58,000 Americans. North Korea has about 24 million people and is too poor and far away to be any threat to the US which has the largest and most heavily armed military in the world.

There aren't any nuclear powered aircraft let alone drones. You are perhaps confusing nuclear bomb carrying bombers with nuclear powered bombers?

There are as yet no nuclear powered* engines small enough (light enough) for that application. Would require something smaller/lighter than would be required for a nuclear powered railroad locomotive and those don't exist yet.

* There are nuclear "batteries" used for space vehicles but these aren't like a nuclear engine. While these have a high energy capacity for their weight they are low power devices (lots of energy but only available slowly over a long time; POWER is energy/time). Not like a nuclear engine, just an emitter of something that decays alpha or beta surrounded by a catcher so charged particles driven between at high energy per particle. Very high voltage, very low current.

It was a typo to say nuclear powered rather than nuclear armed. I did not state a correction because it is obvious in the referenced websites which I assume are read when you read the article that this madness is nuclear armed. Here is the headline from the Antiwar.com website article:
