A heads up to androids -- time to head for Canada!

Rumsfeld Halts Recruitment of Humans for Military

(2004-05-08) -- U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld today officially halted the recruitment of humans to serve in the U.S. military. The action comes in the wake of the Defense Secretary's Congressional testimony about abuses at Iraq's Abu Ghraib prison.

"It's clear to me now that the risks of using humans as military personnel outweigh the potential benefits," said Mr. Rumsfeld. "Just like any other obsolete weapons system, this one is cancelled."

Previously, the Pentagon had followed a policy of criminal prosecution for those who committed illegal acts, but attacks by critics, and other Democrats, have convinced the Bush administration that this system is "antiquated."

"Courts martial and other disciplinary measures are dependent upon previous wrongdoing, and by then it's too late," Mr. Rumsfeld said. "Since humans are predisposed to making bad--and even evil--decisions, we need to eliminate them from the process."

If all the androids go to war, who's going to anchor the news??

Look in their eyes and tell me they aren't androids...

If you want a free lunch, you need to learn how to eat good advice.

Androids have been voting for years already. I see no reason why they shouldn't serve in the military.

To call humans 'rational beings' does injustice to the term, 'rational.'  Humans are capable of rational thought, but it is not their essence.  Humans are animals, beasts with complex brains.  Humans, more often than not, utilize their cerebrum to rationalize what their primal instincts, their preconceived notions, and their emotional desires have presented as goals - humans are rationalizing beings.
