Killer Robots

Can a Robot be mandated to kill people? This would entail a violation of one of the third laws of robotics as formulated by science-fiction author Isaac Asimov: a robot is never to harm a human being. 

This is not a rethorical question any more. The debate is taking place within the United Nations, in the framework of the Conventional Weapons Convention, where the States are discussing whether and how robots can be used in wars.  

El Pais (in Spanish) describes the main issues at stake in this interesting article (CLICK HERE). The New York Times has also published about it (as robotics advance worries of killer robots rise)
For further information, see the website of the global campaign Stop Killer Robots.

I guess the question should be, why do we need to kill other human beings at all?
