Aww... our very own Terminator army!

Wired reports on new robots being tested by the Army in Iraq. They include machine-gun toting bots and unmanned ambulances. Could this be the beginning of the end of manned combat? The political implications of this are interesting - it makes it a lot harder to argue against a war with only an abstract monetary cost, without images of caskets coming home. This might make war more likely in the future.
