Keep killing until the fighting stops.

War isn’t light-hearted, but you can talk about it any way you want. I remember when the US poured a trillion dollars into Iraq to prevent what’s happening today. Today, no-one thinks the money was really for Iraq.

In another part of the world this year, the UN held its first conference on whether robots should be prevented from independently deciding whether to kill people. Really. This is now, folks.

It seems Japan is the leading producer of autonomous thinking machines with limbs. They send them in to their melted nuclear power plants to fix things where mere humans would disintegrate. They train their machines to think and dispatch them with objectives.

It’s easy to imagine how the US could apply this ‘technology’ to the Middle East. Is everybody ready?
