UNITED NATIONS (TheBlaze/AP) — A draft United Nations report says that killer robots that can attack targets without any human input “should not have the power of life and death over human beings.” It deals with legal and philosophical issues of giving robots lethal powers over humans, echoing the “Terminator” movies and countless other science fiction novels and films.

I doubt robots would become self-aware and some how the events of Terminator and numerous other similar scifi films will play out in real life.

Does anyone really believe for even one instant that just because the UN would say NO to killer robots that the US, China and Russia would stop their development? Let alone not put them into operation the first chance they get. With the use of drones and the idea that it's just like a video game, they can't wait to turn this loose on an unsuspecting enemy.
I'm all for robotics for peaceful usage but since this is mil hardware you know they will implement it asap.
