Wars need to be human; and theres a big difference between seeing somethin gin real life and seeing it through a video camera. I'm morally opposed to the very concept of robots doing our killing for us. But I've also never seen combat, so I don't really have the ability to back that up.

I don't think these robots are meant to replace the human presence on the battlefield but to supplement them. We can use these robots to go place when noone else is available.

Charge 7
 
 
Or where they would be certain to be killed. Need a suicide attack? Just program the trusty T-1.

There is very little room for morality on the battlefield. There are quite a few people's who where morally oposed to guns on the battlefield but they arn't around anymore to voice their objections.

I do, however, think it's an interesting concept to ponder. Without human involvement war just becomes a match of each country's economy, really.

Isn't that what it is on the grand scale of things anyways? In conventional warfare anyways.

Not really. Spartains at Thermopole, Hannibal, Russians at Stalingrad, Americans at Coral Sea, Americans at Cowpens...

Point taken. But then again, if it comes down to robots, it'll be who has the best robots and the best tactics team. So yet we can still see such upsets.
