A military researcher is sounding the alarm about the U.S. military’s plan to attempt to create armies of ‘Terminator’ like cyborg super soldiers by 2050.
As The Daily Mail reports:
The US military wants to transform human soldiers into Terminator-style warriors by 2050, but experts warn of the ‘legal and ethical quandaries’ when creating cyborgs.
In a recent report, the Combat Capabilities Development Command noted that limbs could be enhanced to increase strength, eyes implemented with infrared and ultraviolet vision and technology could create subsonic hearing.
However, experts question if humanity is ready for such advances and raises concerns about what happens to these service members once they start a life as a civilian.
Peter Emanuel, a researcher for the US army and lead author of a year-long Department of Defense (DoD) study told Ryan Pickrell with Business Insider: ‘In the next 30 years, you’re going to need to have to deal with these legal and ethical quandaries, and you’re not ready for it.’
The researcher also points out the possibility that soldiers who are technologically enhanced may pose a threat to regular Americans upon re-entering civilian life.
If they are writing this story the China has already stolen the technology from us!
This is the evil of technology. I hope Jesus comes before this starts.
I think it’s likely necessary due to other countries are gunna have them. We should If they do. Drones, cyborgs and robots.
After investing however many millions of dollars into each soldier’s enhancements there is little change the Military is going to let them simply leave the military. These soldiers will have “Special” rank and pay designations that will also come with a “Special” enlistment contract. These soldiers will also be selected from men and women who have already proven to be dependable soldiers and not just fresh recruits. It’s really no different from re-integrating a Navy Seal into civilian society. Compared to all the snowflakes out there now days, a US Navy Seal may as well be Superman.
