Not really, it is Russian and Russian-derived weapons that are most common.

That happens when we arm our allies who then, in the face of the enemy, throw down their guns and run away with out firing a single shot and leave a lot of very high quality and virtually unused weaponry lying around and waiting to be picked up.

Or we give them the guns and they sell them on to the criminals/terrorists.

That was more along the lines of what I heard, but like I said, I don't really know.

I was thinking of the last days of the war in Viet Nam and the way the South Vietnamese Army behaved in the face of the advancing North Vietnamese.

Of course we didn't have robots then.

Nobody was talking about France.

Robots don't have to look and act like humans. These things already exist. Put a motion sensor and tracking system on a 50 caliber machinegun and put it in your backyard. Just don't forget to turn it off before you wander out into the backyard.

Just so long as you calibrate the motion sensor right, you dont want a 50caliber round tearing through the neghbours cat before plowing on through their hedge, car and then kid.

Hopefully it would work a little better than the one on the light in my backyard.
