    My main concerns about robots is the following:

    - Lack of loyalty (a robot serves whoever has the controller and can be turned against us)

    - Use against civilians, by this I mean that the US and other Western Nations are the biggest weapon suppliers for dictator states such as Saudi Arabia & many other dictatorships around the world. Many dictators have used American, European weapons to kill civilians during the African revolutions. What if some day we re selling them robots that they can use to kill civilians?




    But other than those concerns, I m all for robots as they bring fewer casualties and may even lead future wars being 0 human casualty wars (between superpowers) where robots just fight each other.
