What Wikipedia doesn't tell you is that Skynet had humble beginnings as a network clock...
Bow to your Cyberdyn Overlords.

Why would you ever think it was? The United States of America has always been a Republic.
I'd be seriously amazed if they aren't already doing this.
I tend to agree, and while shocking about India, it is also refreshing they are being upfront about it.
