History Fragments: Quote of the Day

“So with the robot, you give it an instruction like: ‘Clear the building – anybody pointing a weapon at you should be killed’. Robots are infinitely brave. They have no hesitation in killing and feel no remorse. And the great thing is you don’t have to send condolence letters to their families if you put them in harm’s way.”

— John Pike, director of GlobalSecurity.org, from Robot Cop: Coming To A City Near You Soon, The Guardian, 30th June 2007
