Why do people go to war? Look at a few examples and try to apply your
reasoning to them. I think you can sum it up generally like this: one party
wants to take the land/freedom of the other party. The aggressor may send
robots at first, and they will clash with the victim's robots. But once all
the robots are gone, will the victims surrender? Much of the time, there are
genocidal motivations. They will want to kill people, not their robots.
