America's robot army

Stephen Graham

Already there are killing machines operating by remote control. Soon the machines will be able to kill on their own initiative. A new warfare is on its way

War is about to change, in terrifying ways. America's next wars, the ones the Pentagon is now planning, will be nothing like the conflicts that have gone before them.

In just a few years, US forces will be able to deal out death, not at the squeeze of a trigger or even the push of a button, but with no human intervention whatsoever. Many fighting soldiers - those GIs in tin hats who are dying two a day in Iraq - will be replaced by machines backed up by surveillance technology so penetrating and pervasive that it is referred to as "military omniscience". Any Americans involved will be less likely to carry rifles than PlayStation-style consoles and monitors that display simulated streetscapes of the kind familiar to players of Grand Theft Auto - and they may be miles from where the killing takes place.

The USA has had robot guns since WW-II. Robot planes since the 1950's. Ro-Bot track vehicles since the 1980's.

You can bet your bottom dollar and your entire mortgage on the FACT that the Military is using said robots right now!

The idea of robotic remote-operated tanks isn't that scary, unless you are in a nation other than America and are worried about what these machines will do to the already-enormous capability of the U.S. military to dish out suffering and annihilation. What scares me is the idea of a machine deciding who to kill. A machine could kill with no remorse, no guilt, no hesitation, and would never question its orders. Scary stuff.

Jumerika comes up with yet another way to murder people. Wildly expensive, too. Another big plus.

Fantastic.

Jumerika spends more on murder machines than the whole rest of the human race combined. And then we have the chutzpah to call THEM the terrorists.

"Automated killing of this kind hasn't been approved by anyone yet, but it is certainly being planned. John Tirpak, editor of Air Force Magazine in the US, expects initially that humans will retain the last word, but he predicts that once robots "establish a track record of reliability in finding the right targets and employing weapons properly", the "machines will be trusted to do even that".


Damn,...better brush up on our re-programming skills.
