What is wrong with bloodless war?

Continuing the conversation following Daniel Suarez's fascinating TEDGlobal Talk,'The Kill Decision Shouldn't Belong To A Robot,' and Skype's Found in Translation Session, we wanted to ask: What is wrong with bloodless war? Is that the vision presented in the talk? What are the implications of autonomous combat drones?

Share your reflections on Suarez's talk and on the surrounding questions questions.

  • Jun 30 2013: you could say a bloodless war couldn't end until there is either there is a lasting peace, blood is shed, or all resources necessary to life and otherwise are wiped out entirely

    but this would only apply with drone vs. drone warfare for our purposes i would say that it isn't really bloodless if someone is suffering somehow
