Armed Combat Robots Headed for Iraq (1/12/05 entry)
The biggest difference? This one shoots.
They’re sending a couple to Iraq this spring some time. See the Strategy Page post for a lot more good stuff.
UPDATE: Actually, that Strategy Page post title is a little unclear.
So are we deploying the Talon 2s to Iraq, or did they just decide to go on their own?
I’m assuming that it’s the former. But don’t people always say things like
- “There’s no such thing as vampires!“,
- “What do you mean ‘they cut the power’? How could they cut the power, man? They’re animals!“, and
- “But it can’t think. It’s just a machine!“
moments before things go really south?
