    Rights Watch because they are taking the threat of just such a thing in the near future very seriously.  While current drones are just remote controlled aircraft due to technology limitations there is no reason to believe that fully automated drones capable of making their own decisions on when and what to fire at will not be available within two or three generations (that's generations of drone technology, not human generations).  I fully expect that within 15 years there will be fully automated drones capable of patrolling an area and deciding who is an enemy all on their own.

    You have watched Faux News, now lose 2d10 SAN.
