‘Killer robots’: Are they really inevitable?

000aaaaa robot

An interesting piece from the BBC. My response to any questions relating to inevitability is an unequivocal yes!! I have documented the automation of law enforcement and the military at length in the final section of my book. Robot killer soldiers, as ludicrous as it sounds, are a prerequisite of the New World Order. Put quite simply, the time is fast approaching when humanity can no longer be relied upon to police itself. A robot army and police force represents the globalists contingency plans in the face of a spiritual renaissance and mass awakening.

The robot tank is moving rapidly through the scrub on its caterpillar tracks. It comes to a sudden halt and its machine gun opens fire with devastating accuracy.

It may seem like science fiction but is actually a scene from a video featuring a robot being tested by the US Army.

It is just one example of how yesterday’s sci-fi has become today’s battlefield fact.

This miniature tank, only one metre long and made by Qinetiq North America, is one of a host of unmanned air, sea and land vehicles that are being used by militaries across the globe.

More than 90 countries now operate such systems, and it is an industry which will be worth $98bn (£58bn) between 2014-23, says research company IHS.

“The USA remains the prime market and a main driver,” says IHS’s Derrick Maple.

“But many countries are building up their indigenous unmanned system capabilities.”

Qinetiq’s roaming robots are designed to aid soldiers in reconnaissance or surveillance, or to go into heavily booby-trapped areas where it might be too risky to send in troops.

Kitted out with either a grenade launcher or a machine gun, the firm’s latest version MAARS – Modular Advanced Armed Robotic System – is certainly lethal, but independent it is not.

It relies on a soldier controlling it remotely, and only operates up to distances of about 800m (2,600ft).

However, many critics worry that marrying advances like these in robotics and miniaturisation, with developments in artificial intelligence (AI) could lead, if not to the Terminator, then perhaps to its crude precursor.

Others argue that such AI developments would take many decades, and that for the foreseeable future there will need to be a “human in the loop”, overseeing such systems.
