It May Not Be Long Before We Do Away With The Soldier

If the folks at Boston Dynamics have any say in the matter, mankind will relegate conflicts to specialized military robots like Boston Dynamics’ Petman.

I am reminded of what George S Patton once said ” Wars may be fought with weapons, but they are won by men. It is the spirit of men who follow and of the man who leads that gains the victory” – I wonder what he’d say.

However, the success of unmanned aerial vehicles in the prosecution of the GWOT is undisputed, but can that success be extended to the battlefield; removing the foot soldier and replacing him with military robots like Petman? Interesting question and the possibilities are indeed interesting.
