Seems that we will remain at war for a while according to what I've read. They're talking about deploying lots of troops to Afghanistan and maybe even Pakistan for brief strikes. Robots are perfect for dangerous caves and tunnels that dot the hills of Afghanistan. The main issue with that is radio interference as you go deeper into the mountains, but that could be handled, I imagine, with some creativity on the part of the designers.
