Paul J. Selva, vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said on Thursday that "Terminator" like machines are being developed by enemies of the U.S. that could soon replace humans in the battlefield.

The future of war will involve autonomous robots instead of humans, says the vice-chair.
RT reports:
Speaking at the think-tank Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) in Washington, Selva said the technology could be developed in 10 years - and that the world's biggest military should punish anyone who pursues such weapons.
"This is about an entirely robotic system, completely autonomous, [that is] not dependent on the human decision," Selva said. "We're told by the technologists that we're a decade or so away from that capability."
"I don't think it's impossible that somebody will try to build a completely autonomous system, and I'm not talking about something like a cruise missile … or a mine that requires a human to target it and release it and it goes and finds its target," Selva said.
Selva called for the US to use international law to prevent such weapon development, but pointed to similar laws being violated: "In spite of the fact that we don't approve of chemical or biological weapons, we know there are entities - both states and non-states-that continue to pursue that capability in our world."
While Selva was likely referring to Syria's use of chemical weapons, he could also have been referring to Israel's use of white phosphorus in 2008-2009, or even its own use of the nasty substance in Fallujah in 2004.

Paul Selva, vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, commented on the US's underwhelming presence in the region.
"The fact that we don't have the capacity in any material way to have a surface presence in the Arctic is something that we ought to address," Selva said.
"I'm not sure that they're [icebreakers] the solution but they are probably part of the solution," Selva added.
Selva responded, "how we buy them, I'm going to leave that to the people that worry about that problem everyday."
