The inhumane treatment of robots

During a demonstration, where the robot was continually blown up until it was down to one leg, Tilden was ordered to stop by an Army Colonel who was distressed at seeing the crippled robot hobbling toward the next landmine. With his judgement clouded no doubt by seeing humans engaged in the real thing, the Colonel declared the demonstration was inhumane.

Maybe we'll start being humane when they start being humane. Hasn't this judgment-clouded colonel seen the "Terminator" movies?
