Baron Frankenstein, call your service

Headline from Wired:
Army Wants Soldiers' Heads To Control Robots
What sort of sick, twisted monsters are running the Army's R&D?

Well, they could always draft a bunch of Halo-playing couch potatoes and let them run the robots from their basement game rooms Stateside. Thereby freeing up actual soldiers in-theatre for actual soldierly work. (I.E., running the battle, killing the enemy, etc.)

Of course, there's the problem of making sure that the Gameboys only shoot the enemy. Not to mention justifying bulk buys of Cheetos to the CBO.
