Terminator style killer robots ... coming soon ...




by Christophe » 08/12/12, 09:33

The Terminator is no longer really a science fiction character: it is a weapon that could be operational within twenty or thirty years. A fully autonomous "killer robot".

These robots will be programmed to “clean up” a building, with authorization to kill all human beings over 1,30 m in it: then it manages. Or, if it is a drone, it will be sent over a battlefield, to detect all enemy vehicles and destroy them one by one.

Nobel Prize winners and human rights groups have called for a global "preventive ban" on "killer robots", these sophisticated weapons acting without human supervision, being researched, before "science fiction becomes reality ”.

Human Rights Watch, International Human Rights Clinic and the Nobel Peace Prize laureates the Nobel Women's Initiative announced to the press in Washington a campaign for the establishment of "an international treaty that would totally ban development, production and use of these completely autonomous weapons ", nicknamed the" robot-killers ".

Released the same day, a 50-page report, "Losing Humanity," for the first time provided an update on ongoing research into these weapons, "capable of picking and firing at targets without human intervention" and which could be operational in 20 or 30 years.

Activists worried that "without public debate", governments are developing weapons that "unacceptably endanger civilians in conflict without being accountable for humanitarian laws," Steve Goose told reporters , from Human Rights Watch. And in the event of "an inevitable violation of human rights, one cannot know who can be held responsible," he added.

These types of weapons, designed to be "fearless and angry," will no longer show "any compassion," said Bonnie Docherty of HRW.

"Keep the public informed, bring together non-governmental organizations, work with governments," added Jody Williams, 1997 Nobel Peace Prize winner for anti-personnel mines, "horrified. At the idea of ​​these weapons.

We can always bark, cry wolf ... this will not prevent the military from continuing their research, they just have to not advertise it in the big shits. Who can go and inspect / sanction them if they cheat? : Mrgreen:

It is like banning a whole bunch of weapons, which governments (including ours) have officially supported, and which are promoted and sold in quantity by these same governments ... must do business and nurturing opportunities for personal enrichment ... France is the world's third largest seller of weapons ...

This development is the result of both an ever-present desire to exterminate enemies in distant (or near and urban) "theaters of operations" (as the military say)?Image) without incurring a loss in the ranks of the attacker: ensuring that the war remains virtual, at least on one side.
It is only the continuity of what we already observe with missiles controlled at very great distance from a video screen, similarly with the rise of drones (including Obama, a Nobel Peace Prize laureate, is an avid user) whose analogy with a video game already leaves very little room for compassion.

Ahmed takes the words out of my mouth!

We're going to an even more terrifying world, I'm afraid : Shock: : Shock: : Shock:

And the techno-geek sitting behind their teloche - while waiting for "death" in their virtual video games - will continue to proclaim:
- "Ah well if you have nothing to reproach yourself with, you risk absolutely nothing, so why oppose it ... " (and continue to kill each other more beautifully with "virtual enemies" on screen unless you also become the victim one day, at the mercy of a sudden reversal of power control ...)

Yes, but indeed, these assassinations by intermediate technology have already existed for a long time. It's just a "qualitative leap in competitiveness", no? : Evil:

Sorry, Obamot, dependent contrast!

... and to continue to kill a virtual enemy on screen, unless you are also the victim one day ...

You forget that it is the technological asymmetry which makes the "interest" of this strategic orientation; "normally", a response from the enemy is also "not part of the game", as evidenced by the American outrage during the attack on the WTC towers ...

The principle of drones and other remotely piloted or even self-piloted vehicles lies above all in neutralizing public opinion.
It is since the Vietnam War that the pentagon started to launch concept of RPV (remotely piloted vehicles).
The D21 was already flying at mach4 .... in 1969 over Russia!

The advantage is as follows: no wounded soldiers, no annoying witnesses (many veterans we end up, disabled, homeless ...), no prisoners to exchange, and above all no pensions to pay!
It is therefore possible to wage war without it being apparent to public opinion, the lack of media coverage and the metro work and sleep do the rest!

Bof ... The killer robot is just a way of being able to wage war longer ... Indeed it spares children who will be its victims in 5 years ...
It's not worth a good old bacterium bomb with ebola ...
