UN Report Wants Moratorium on Killer Robots

Ah, the anti-American United Nations.  The idiots would have us disarm:

UNITED NATIONS — Killer robots that can attack targets without any human input “should not have the power of life and death over human beings,” a new draft U.N. report says…

Report author Christof Heyns, a South African professor of human rights law, calls for a worldwide moratorium on the “testing, production, assembly, transfer, acquisition, deployment and use” of killer robots until an international conference can develop rules for their use…

His report cites these examples, among others, of fully or semi-autonomous weapons that have been developed:

— The U.S. Phalanx system for Aegis-class cruisers, which automatically detects, tracks and engages anti-air warfare threats such as anti-ship missiles and aircraft.
