What is their definition of robot? Personally I think a robot is a machine that is programmed to respond to certain scenarios, inputs, data etc. I'm
sure many agree on that.
Consider an air-to-air missile, the type that is used to shoot down planes, or even an ground-to-air missile, or even ANY form of guided missile.
These missiles often possess a very complex array of sensors and guidance hardware, with some pretty neat decision-making programming. Sound familiar?
Yes, it often takes human input to make these missiles work, but that's basically as simple as turning the thing on. The missile does the rest, you
turn a combat-robot on, the robot does the rest. No different. Guided missiles are a type of robot, guided missiles kill. Their entire purpose is to
render an enemy asset useless, regardless of human harm. There's waaayyy too much money in this, way too much investments and time for any firm to
let the U.N. pass a flawed convention.
