Re: Sorry Cori, I respectfully disagree...

So if the result of my campaign to block AI weapons development is that more innocent people are killed, and more civilian property is destroyed, then what is my moral position?

Has that been established? I've not seen anything remotely resembling a fact that suggests it has.

Before we can establish that "AI" is a problem here, or even part of a problem, or even that a problem exists, we have to first establish what the collateral to target ratio is for "dumb" weapons. Then we can work out per target eliminated, whether the collateral damage is better or worse. Then we can debate whether or not it is socially acceptable.

None of that work has been done yet.
