U.N. Expert Calls for Halt in Military Robot Development

From:  The New York Times 

COMMENT -  The article below raises the question of lethal autonomous robotics,” this voiced by Christof Heyns the United Nations special rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions with the comment, "War without reflection is mechanical slaughter.” It is essential we urge the Human Rights Council in Geneva to take action holding drone contractors responsible for their cooperative efforts to inflict a campaign of terror on people in diverse jurisdictions around the world. 

Marcia Brewster from the United Nations suggested the Human Rights Commission be contacted to begin a cooperative effort in alignment with the findings of the suggested moratorium.
