Although it sounds like an upcoming science fiction thriller, this is real, folks. The U.N. is holding special meetings about the prospect of these killer robots being unleashed by terrorists upon the earth.
KILLING MACHINE Terrorists ‘actively seeking’ to build deadly army of intelligent killer robots, UN warns
Shock United Nations research highlights the terrifying prospect of extremists unleashing murder machines on the world
Terrorists are working to build armies of artificially intelligent killer robots capable of slaughtering vast numbers of innocent civilians.
That’s the terrifying claim from a piece of authoritative research published by the United Nations, which recently held an urgent meeting to discuss the threat posed by murderous machines.
Experts from dozens of countries convened in Geneva to consider the grim implications of “Lethal Autonomous Weapons Systems” (LAWS) which are capable of killing without needing to have a human at the controls.
These sorts of machines are famous from films like The Terminator, but in reality killer robots could be anything from a smart landmine to a drone fitted with machine guns.
The UN wants to set strict guidelines governing the use of killer robots to make sure they don’t end up being used as indiscriminate weapons of war, but it said terrorists would never abide by these guidelines.
“Whilst these [robotic killing] systems might be available to technologically advanced countries in an initial phase, it is likely that they will proliferate,” it said in a report.
“Terrorists are in fact actively seeking such systems,” the report continued. – source
While reading this, I could not help but wonder if these monstrous robots will be unleashed during the 7 year tribulation. When I would read about the locusts from Revelation 9, I would always think that God Himself sent these creatures. Could these locusts be the army of killer robots?
The Article Goes On:
“Illegal transfers might mean that LAWS would become available to non-state actors [terrorists]. It was noted there may be no incentive for such actors to abide by international norms and this may further increase global or regional instability.”
The world is on the edge of a robotics revolution which is expected to see machines take on humans roles and potentially cause unemployment on a truly catastrophic scale.
But as robot tech becomes commonplace, it could end up being hijacked by terrorists and used to kill innocent people.
The UN report continued: “Due to the inherent dual-use character of many robotic technologies, many systems originally intended for civilian purposes could easily be modified to serve military functions.
It is likely that powerful countries will build war machines capable of fighting battles without needing to be controlled by a human operator.
These “swarms” of killing machines could go rogue and end up pitilessly slaughtering humans on a scale far in excess of the original mission plan.
“Swarms of such systems with complementary capabilities may carry out attacks,” the report said.
“In these scenarios where swarms of LAWS act as force multipliers, it would be unclear how meaningful human control could be maintained over the use of force, especially as the available time frame for human intervention is likely to be restricted.
“This would be exacerbated where speed becomes a motivation to deploy such systems in the first place.”
“This would not only increase the risk of proliferation, but also create accountability problems.” – source
“And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit.
And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.
And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.
And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.
And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man.
And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.
And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men” (Revelation 9:1-7)
Brethren, we will not be here to experience the Tribulation period. God in His great mercy will take us away from this wicked place. There would be absolutely no reason for Him to leave His bride on the earth during this time!
