I remember HAL, 2001 Space Odyessy. BTW, they sure were off with their science fiction dates. We never got that far in space travel.

Drones, are flown by dudes in America using joysticks. When a drone gets killed - there is no sense of "killing the enemy" in combat. There may a video game type victory. Like when you score the high score with a bunch people watching you. That's now warrior glory because there is no Gladiator.

...and they shall beat their sword into plowshares, and there will be war no more...(except for self-defense).

Isaiah 2:4 And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.
