Killing by remote

This is the latest toy Israel is considering deploying on the borders it refuses to declare.

For years and years, the Israeli military has been trying to figure out a way to keep Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip from crossing over into Israel proper.…  … The latest tactic: create a set of “automated kill zones” by networking together remote-controlled machine guns, ground sensors, and drones along the 60-kilometer border.

Automatic kill zones.…  Hmmmm.…  I don’t suppose these things can identify women and children, by any chance?
