DO YOU REALLY WANT TO BAN KILLER ROBOTS?

terminatorThat toothless organisation, the United Nations is currently debating Lethal Autonomous Weapons (LAW), specifically their ethical and sociological implications should machines ever be deployed on a street near you. I suspect having a lethal Terminator type robot screaming ‘Make My Day’ before blowing your Goddamn heeed right off might be considered an abuse of human rights! Personally I have nothing against shiny, rustproof, self-lubricating bipeds keeping order on the streets at home or on the battlefields abroad. At least they won’t down tools to f**k a hooker! Others may think strafing civilians or combatants indiscriminately should remain the responsibility of flesh & blood police officers and soldiers. Either way, I very much doubt killer robots will ever be seen or heard of outside a movie theatre! When science fantasy ‘bleeds’ into everyday life it makes me wonder whether our leaders do actually know what the f**k they’re doing?
