Cool! Killer robots will leave humans ‘utterly defenceless’ warns professor

Killer robots which are being developed by the US military ‘will leave humans utterly defenceless‘, an academic has warned.

Two programmes commissioned by the US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) are seeking to create drones which can track and kill targets even when out of contact with their handlers.

    This is an old chestnut for “academics”. Somehow using anything more sophisticated than a club somehow makes lethal force free from ethical constraints and more barbaric. Telescopic sights. Boiling oil. Land mines. Greek fire. Civilian Bombing. Razing farms. They desicate it into some lofty ethical Rubicon.

      They’re only ever concerned with American weapons it seems.

      • Sir Roderick Spode

        Yeah you got that right. British wanker Academics who’s predominant interests are some Fairy Tale repudiation of issues revolving about conflict involving lethal force ” We all know how naughty that is dont we children!!??”

      I lost interest as soon as I saw the word ‘professor’. The letters U and N have the same effect on me.

      • Sir Roderick Spode

        Indeed. Poets and posers U & N and other wise PHD in turning a blind eye and rank hypocrisy. Ahhhh Nuh. I know plenty of men and women who have played that contest of survival from Dresden to East Timor. It is vital we that try to keep the planet as blood free as is feasible take the least notice of scholars and academics..

      They don’t need clubs. They’ll talk you to death.

    • Keep up the R&D. We need it more that ever.

  • El Martyachi

    Finally some good news.

    It’s inevitable. They use robots to replace other members of society. Why not soldiers. Hasn’t, as previously seen on BCF, Canada developed a sentry automatic gun that targets and engages the enemy?

    This could be the answer to American soldiers’ reluctance to fire on citizens.

    Yawn… I was rendered utterly defenseless by anti-firearm laws and reduction in military spending implemented by leftist governments decades ago. Drone or mooselimb terrorist, It isn’t that big a deal.
