Rise of the Machines
There's another SURGE going down in Iraq -- but this time, American Robots are doing the surging. These special robots appear to be made by the same company that makes those funny round vacuum robots that get caught and then make the sad beep from under your dining room table if the chairs are too close together like they usually are because that's where the chairs are supposed to go. In other words, this should turn out well.
The Pentagon has ordered another 3,000 of the reconnaissance robots to Iraq, where they'll do whatever it is they do over there, which is to basically try to freak out everybody because OMG ROBOTS.
