Drones are nothing new to warfare, and the development of fully automated unmanned robotic weapons is a reality of our not so distant future. These weapons have completely changed modern warfare and continue to do so in such ways that force the moral scrutiny of the progression from human soldiers to automated drones (The Economist, Drones and the man).
For opponents of drones the move poses a real danger as we risk dissociating from the moral implications of the actions we set into motion (YouTube, The Pros and Cons of Drones). Another position against the drone is of whether it will be able to distinguish between real threats—i.e. a soldier with a rifle, and non-threats—a child with a toy gun (New York Times, The Morality of Robotic War).
