The Paperless Office and the Personless War
From CNN: “Members of the group have caused problems for coalition forces in some areas, where they have disguised themselves as civilians to ambush troops or pretended to surrender and opened fire -- acts the United States have called "serious violations of the laws of war."”

Errr…the laws of war? You mean where you line up in rows and then squat down to reload your musket, allowing the row behind you a turn? Remember from history how peeved the British were when Canadians were fighting like natives (i.e. hiding instead of lining up properly)? I figure war is about outsmarting the other guy. I think the Americans are just sore that they got fooled.

Besides, by now, why are there human fighting wars? Shouldn’t droids be fighting them?
