- Imagine a garrison of third-gen "Big Dogs" in every major US city, with assault rifles and thermal vision. "Don't like martial law or the new curfew? Stay inside after 8:00 pm and you'll be safe, citizen! The recession will be over soon."
- Like someone else said, shoot-to-kill orders on any human-sized heat signature.
- If the only remaining witness of an atrocity is a platoon of robots, and they have no video recording units installed, did the atrocity really happen?
- Once the cheap and "bloodless" bombing from afar is over, the REAL fighting takes place on the ground in the rubble. This is the infantry equivalent of the ariel bomber.
- Imagine waves of these floating over from China. Like the Sherman tank in WWII, you don't have to make them better than the opposition, just make them in large enough quantities.
If you don't see the use for these things, try thinking like a politician, The uses are ENDLESS. Too bad American schools don't teach Civics anymore.
