Response to Kindly Refrain (Reply #4)

29. Who says they're going to be controlled from 500 miles away?

 

In less than 20 years they'll be coming up with excuses why it's so great for national security to have these run by computer-animal hybrid brains with autonomy over battlefield decisions. They'll program the Geneva protocols right into'em and claim a higher rate of compliance with international law than with live soldiers.

But anyway, the eventual deployment isn't going to be on foreign battlefields. It's going to be right here at home, and the targets - you lot - are going to be pretty easy to deal with.
