Gotta hurry up and get those drones deployed en mass in America to be able to kill people who oppose Deathcare and completely criminal extortion austerity-home evicting electricity rates after they realize how bad it's going to get.

Welcome to Skynet! That's right, robots are advancing at a rapid rate and eventually we will have autonomous drones and robots.  And keep in mind what happens when authoritarian governments are able to have armies with no human emotion to carry our their will.

mission complete? Jade Helm 2015

Jade Helm 15, Robot Drones, Patriotism, United Nations Troops And Fetishes (2015 Martial Law Update)
July 28, 2015
...

Another important observation being made by everyday concerned people in relationship to Jade Helm 15 is that the recent Chattanooga Tennessee military recruiting center shooting is already being used by the military and intelligence services to promote the “importance” of their presence, thus to push martial law condition even closer to reality (more information about which can be found via link #3 in the show notes). And a third observation and concern being made by typical folks is the quickening introductions of new robot drones (including aerial, terrestrial and aquatic of all sizes) intended for both policing and urban warfare.

More specifically In relationship to Jade Helm 15, these drone technologies are being
(1) educated with data gathered from Jade Helm 15 prior to ever being deployed (also known as “instant knowledge refresh”),
(2) upgraded with unit level hardware and programming intended to improve functionality for future engagements based on Jade Helm 15 and
 (3) used during Jade Helm 15 itself (especially in the skies). Even more concerning is that these technologies are only some of the first prototypes to be tested during periods of domestic social unrest which was instigated by the military during Jade Helm 15.
Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5

The American Military's Real Problem: Shooting 'Ants' With 'Elephant Guns'
19 November 2016
, by Tobias Burgers - Strategic-Culture (Zero Hedge)
http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-11-19/american-militarys-real-problem-shooting-ants-elephant-guns

Excerpt:

Military leaders have an amazing ability to develop strategy but if they fail to take into account the economic costs, their strategies could become inherently unviable and unsustainable. To what extent is society willing to put up with wars that are foremost robotic and primarily economic?

This could be the case in asymmetry as well as in conflicts between high tech actors. Combat – particularly robotic combat – could become ultimately a purely economic affair in which the states that have the economic resources to sustain a longer robotic warfare campaign win. In this, the inhuman element of future combat would not only release the concept of human casualties, but likewise begin sketching a different template for warfare, perhaps even cause a paradigm shift in warfare, from which point warfare could be solely an economic affair. This could in a sense create an incentive for actors to try to fight wars on the cheap – particularly against actors bound by their high-tech warfare capabilities.

We often think of our military capabilities as one that allow us to dominate the battlefield, to achieve full spectrum dominance and enemy/threat enclosure. Turning to “unmanned” systems, or (small) drones, such technology could start a new era of warfare in which actors with lesser-economic possibilities, not just capabilities, can seize upon the opportunity to expand the space of the battlefield to their benefit, namely through the use of simple drones, loaded with explosives. In this, actors would exploit different avenues or new ways (for them) of attacking their enemy.

This sort of scenario can be played-out along the lines of IS sending bomb-loaded drones against the Kurdish Peshmerga, or a terrorist trying to fly small-scale drones into the U.S. Capitol. It is pertinent to consider how this kind of approach to warfare and technology will evolve.

For the first time, technology actually seems to favor those with lesser possibilities but perversely presents more opportunity. Generally, technology has favored the actors who have the money to pursue the research and defense (R&D) side of warfare and warfighting, but now actors who do not have it can benefit in due course. Have we been too unmindful of how warfare has become foremost economic once again? Now actors with limited means actually possess the means to act beyond their material capabilities and limits and conduct strikes beyond their (limited) horizon.

Marine Corps experiment silences entire infantry battalion’s weapons
‘It revolutionizes the way we fight’
 By Douglas Ernst - The Washington Times - Updated: 2:37 p.m. on Wednesday, November 23, 2016

The U.S. Marine Corps is attempting a unique experiment that pairs the deadly — but typically loud — fire power of an infantry battalion with silence.

Maj. Gen. John Love of 2nd Marine Division out of Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, is gathering data on the way suppressors improve battlefield communication and efficiency. Early testing at Marine Corps Air-Ground Combat Center Twentynine Palms indicates that suppressing everything from M4 rifles to .50 caliber machine guns can dramatically assist U.S. warfighters.

“What we’ve found so far is it revolutionizes the way we fight,” Gen. Love recently said at the Marine Corps Association Ground Dinner, Military.com reported Tuesday. “It used to be a squad would be dispersed out over maybe 100 yards, so the squad leader couldn’t really communicate with the members at the far end because of all the noise of the weapons. Now they can actually just communicate, and be able to command and control and effectively direct those fires.”

Survey: 1.3 million industrial robots to enter service by 2018
Frankfurt,
25 February 2016

- The automation of the fourth industrial revolution is accelerating:

By 2018, around 1.3 million industrial robots will be entering service in factories around the world.

In the high-revenue automotive sector, global investments in industrial robots increased by a record-breaking 43 percent (2013-2014) within one year. Viewed on a cross-sector basis, the international market value for robotic systems now lies at around 32 billion US dollars. So says the 2015 World Robot Statistics, issued by the International Federation of Robotics (IFR).

The robotic density figure is a key performance indicator for gauging the current degree of automation within the international markets: For example, the average global robotic density in producing industries lies at 66  robot units per 10,000 employees.

A total of 21 countries  have an above-average robotic density (Fig. 1). More than one-half of these highly automated countries are located in the European Union (14 countries). Then there are three Asian economies (South Korea, Japan, Taiwan), as well as the USA and Canada.

The current global leader in industrial robotic automation is South Korea
.

In this instance, the robotic density exceeds the global average by a good seven-fold (478 units), followed by Japan (314 units) and Germany (292 units). At 164 units, the USA currently occupies seventh place in the world.

At 36 units per 100,000 employees or about half the global average figure, China is currently in 28th place. Within the overall global statistics, this is roughly on a par with Portugal (42 units), or Indonesia (39 units). However, about five years ago, China embarked on a historically unparalleled game of catch-up aimed at changing the status quo, and already today it is the world's largest sales and growth market for industrial robots.

Figure 1: Global robot density above average - European Union (Germany, Sweden, Denmark, Belgium, Italy, Spain, Finland, France, Austria, Netherlands, Slovenia, Slovakia, Czech Republic, United Kingdom), Asia (Republic of Korea, Japan, Taiwan), America (USA, Canada).

Never before have so many robot units been sold in one year as were sold in China in 2014 (57,100 units). The boom is continuing unabated in line with the forecasts: In 2018, China will account for more than one-third of the industrial robots installed worldwide.

"The robotic boom is laying down an important milestone in the realisation of the fourth industrial revolution", says Joe Gemma, President of the International Federation of Robotics. "With their digital interfaces, industrial robots can be seamlessly integrated into the networked structures of smart factories. This is a benefit exploited by highly automated economies and by countries adopting a new industrial focus. Further impetus is coming into the form of the technological breakthrough in human-robot collaboration: Robotic workers will in future be found working hand-in-hand with human staff, helping to replace traditional, rigid production processes with flexible structures."
