Factory Producing War Machines | Pitt. PA – O’bama Green Jobs?

Pittsburgh Organizing Group (POG) and supporters set out to shut down the National Robotics Engineering Center (NREC), a largely Pentagon-funded venture of Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) that has become a world leader in warfare robotics. The action succeeded beyond the organizers’ expectations.

“Building War Robots Death Machines. CMU for years has been developing software at the Software Development Institute, one of the projects was for autonomous land vehicles, flying vehicles, and now killer robots – and they make different flavors of killer robots that are going to be used, and some are being used in Iraq right now and we feel that it is wrong to kill and it is wrong to waste money on finding new and exotic ways to kill our enemy du jour.” —Vincent Scotti Eirene
