Military robots are a Bad Idea

0

When will the military learn.  Have 4 Terminator movies not been enough to show that robots do not belong on the battlefield, or making the decisions, or anywhere besides a book.  You would think that anyway.  But it seems that saving one human life on the battlefield is worth killing 1000 human lives in 5 years.  I don’t know about you, but that’s not logical.

A company has designed a robot that can take power from biomass.  This is an awesome concept.  If we can power a robot from biomass, why not a car, or an airplane, or a house?  No, first we make a military application of the technology, then it filters down to the public (in actuality, that’s how it’s happened for the past 100 years or so).  But the implemtation of the technology is wrong.

They are working on a robot that feeds on all sorts of biomass, that includes dead human bodies on it’s endless search for whatever it was programed to do.  Well I’m going to take this situation a few steps further because I have an imagination, and I know how to use it.

So, you made this robot, it can roam the land forever using plants and animals for food.  There’s a storm, it gets struck by lightning, it gains sentience, instead of a fun loving awesome robot like Johnny 5, we get a killing machine sent on a mission from Hell to destroy all humans.  It’s not long before this robot learns how to construct primitive versions of himself by abducting other robots and hardware.  Soon enough there’s an army of biomass eating baby robot killers.  Under orders from the HERO (Human Eradication-Relocation, Organization) high command, the army soon overwhelms the humans in the outlying areas of war torn countries.  Soon all traces of humans are gone, and the military is in the process of considering dropping atomic bombs to cover it up.  Unfortunately for us, our fear happy government is too scared to use the one weapon that can save us, and HERO quickly makes its way across the seas and oceans and comes ashore everywhere.  There are too many of them to be effectually contained.  The only hope is to wipe them all through a coordinated global nuclear strike.  But time is running out.

The HERO high command being born of the military, has access to the codes and satellites used and knows of this plan.  They have sent drones out on missions to consume the components of the nuclear bombs – yes they have evolved to consuming all matter now.  Also, HERO high command has carved out themselves an underground base in sub-Sahara Africa for multiple logistical reasons, so should the drones fail, the high command will still be around.  And then it’s a simple matter of going topside and flourishing, because radiation has no effect on a machine.

The world is slowly falling to the agents of HERO.  There is no turning back now, the robots have won.  Even with the nuclear strike, enough of the drones survived to wreak havoc with the surviving humans.  A group of humans have banded together to form a resistance.  The call themselves the Robot Revolutionaries, RR.  They have captured many agents of HERO, and have reverse engineered much of them.  They have also discovered something, a plot that could destroy what we know of humanity at present.  There is not much that can stop it, but for a lone person named A.E.P. Who is this A.E.P.?  He must be found, but he could be anywhere in history…
