Rise of the War Machines: Recruiting Robots for Combat


The problem is that innocent men, women, children and babies don't have robots to defend them from our killer robots! So war will be safer for whom?

War would be a lot safer, the Army says, if only more of it were fought by robots.

And while smart machines are already very much a part of modern warfare, the Army and its contractors are eager to add more.

New robots - none of them particularly human-looking - are being designed to handle a broader range of tasks, from picking off snipers to serving as indefatigable night sentries.

So instead of trying to avoid, or eliminate war, we are expanding it's capabilities. De-humanizing it. Your tax dollars at work.

The Nazi saying was DEUTSCHLAND UBER ALLES. The new one will be AMERICA UBER ALLES, WITH A ROBOT ARMY! There goes our Social Security money.
