Campaign To Stop Killer Robots: The Problem

The Problem

Over the past decade, the expanded use of unmanned armed vehicles has dramatically changed warfare, bringing new humanitarian and legal challenges. Now rapid advances in technology are resulting in efforts to develop fully autonomous weapons. These robotic weapons would be able to choose and fire on targets on their own, without any human intervention. This capability would pose a fundamental challenge to the protection of civilians and to compliance with international human rights and humanitarian law.

Several nations with high-tech militaries, particularly the United States, China, Israel, South Korea, Russia, and the United Kingdom are moving toward systems that would give greater combat autonomy to machines. If one or more chooses to deploy fully autonomous weapons, a large step beyond remote-controlled armed drones, others may feel compelled to abandon policies of restraint, leading to a robotic arms race. Agreement is needed now to establish controls on these weapons before investments, technological momentum, and new military doctrine make it difficult to change course.

Allowing life or death decisions to be made by machines crosses a fundamental moral line. Autonomous robots would lack human judgment and the ability to understand context. These qualities are necessary to make complex ethical choices on a dynamic battlefield, to distinguish adequately between soldiers and civilians, and to evaluate the proportionality of an attack. As a result, fully autonomous weapons would not meet the requirements of the laws of war.

Replacing human troops with machines could make the decision to go to war easier, which would shift the burden of armed conflict further onto civilians. The use of fully autonomous weapons would create an accountability gap as there is no clarity on who would be legally responsible for a robot’s actions: the commander, programmer, manufacturer, or robot itself? Without accountability, these parties would have less incentive to ensure robots did not endanger civilians and victims would be left unsatisfied that someone was punished for the harm they experienced.

CIA Officers Killed On US Air Force Bombardier E-11A Jet Shot Down By The Taliban.....

Taliban claims it shot down US Air Force plane in Afghanistan carrying CIA officers The Taliban has claimed a “passenger plane” that crashed in Afghanistan was actually a US Air Force jet it deliberately shot down. The jet came down in the country’s eastern Ghazni province, which is controlled by the military organisation, this afternoon. Local officials initially reported the jet to be a Boeing 737-400 plane that belonged to Ariana Airlines, carrying 83 passengers. But the state-owned carrier quickly moved to deny the claims as new pictures emerged from the crash site. The images showed the wreckage of the plane with the engine bearing a US Air Forces logo, prompting US military officials to investigate. But the Taliban has now issued a statement to claim that the aircraft was, as the pictures indicate, a US Air Force Bombardier E-11A jet that it shot down. In a statement a Taliban source said the plane was carrying high ranking Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) officers. It a…

DANIEL'S FIRST BEAST LIONESS WITH WINGS OF AN EAGLE: CDC On The Second AIR-TRAVEL Related Case Of 2019 Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Brought To America....

The first was like a lioness, and had the wings of an eagle: I beheld till her wings were plucked off, and she was lifted up from the earth, and stood upon her feet as a man, and the heart of a man was given to her. Dan.7
Daniel's first beast the lioness with wings of an eagle is the Airline/Space Industry.
Looks like the airlines industry brought another infected person to America.
