Are we or our machines the ones who are wired for war???

Watch this video presentation of this book.   It is a must read by an expert in the field who has advised the military on war robotics.  How expensive will future hi-tech wars become for America?

Peter W. Singer has written a very interesting book on the future of armed conflict and how it is already drastically changing how wars are fought and how often.  More pilots are being trained to fly drones than to fly standard combat planes.  Drones are already accomplishing more kills than any other combat plane flown traditionally.  Some of these drone pilots do not even have high school degrees but yet through their video game skills are perfectly geared for this kind of piloting.
