Assignment of the U.S. Army:
To Kill Innocent Civilians

Yves Eudes has an article on America's future robot army, replete with Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGV), mules, packbots, throwbots, and other inventions of the same type.

Except for the last couple of sentences, the Le Monde article itself is pretty tame, but that is all changed by the simple presence of the Rodriguez cartoon (here shortened slightly from the print version), in which a monstrous mass murder machine chases after and runs down… unarmed, innocent civilians (!), swallowing them up and deposing their corpses, like cube-shaped bales of hay, in the trailer behind it.
