Robots and machines who fight a battle in the name of humanity: sounds like sci-fi stuff. Yet, it is a scenario likely to happen and not to be deterred. "In the first place it's about software. The AI which makes it possible for the robot to make independent decisions without soldier's interference is still a way to go. In that case, the robot would need to hit the target autonomously, he'd need to have the capacity to identify the target. Technically speaking this may be possible - but is it wishful? People must remain in control. The Netherlands uses drones for surveillance but not for warfare. US and Israel do tend to use drone technology for warfare."
