Steady Evolution of Weapons

Every generation invents weapons the previous considers too horrible. Those who create the weapons lie to themselves that the horror will end war. Right now we are creating armies of robots of all sizes to overwhelm any enemy/victim while we sit comfortably a continent a way and watch the slaughter on viewscreens. It is only a matter of time until this escalation ends, not war, but the human species, after an unusually short reign on earth.
