U.S. Military to Replace Soldiers with Robots?

Defense News reports that “the postwar, sequestration-era US Army is working on becoming ‘a smaller, more lethal, deployable and agile force,’ according to Gen. Robert Cone, head of the service’s Training and Doctrine Command.”

“But just how much smaller might come as a surprise.”

“During remarks at the Army Aviation Symposium in Arlington, Va., on Jan. 15, Cone quietly dropped a bomb. The Army, he said, is considering the feasibility of shrinking the size of the brigade combat team from about 4,000 soldiers to 3,000 over the coming years, and replacing the lost soldiers with robots and unmanned platforms.”
