Well, maybe Bush is in little hurry... in quarter economy corporations would be happy to have four wars per year.



"What's more, these robots don't need retirement benefits, they don't have to be paid a re-enlistment bonus and they can be boxed up and warehoused between wars.
They also, of course, don't have loved ones who miss them and mourn them."
