A military perspective on lethal autonomous weapon systems

image of A military perspective on lethal autonomous weapon systems

War is considered as a last resort after all peaceful options to end a dispute have been exhausted. Nations are expected to refrain from targeting innocent civilian populations. Furthermore, disproportionate military action and collateral damage should be avoided with the ultimate aim being the restoration of peace. The conflicts of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries have shown that, on occasion, avoiding civilian casualties becomes challenging owing to the blurring of lines between soldiers, non-State actors and non-combatants.
