Towards a Red Goo AI Singularity

One of the scariest science fiction-y future scenarios is Grey Goo, where artificial machines self-replicate in an out-of-control manner until all accessible matter and energy resources have been turned into artificial machines.

I consider a 'Red Goo' future scenario to be more likely, due to the development and increasingly prolific use of precision guided weapons and drones in warfare.

I define the Red Goo scenario as one where most human resources (people) have been turned into Red Goo (killed) by precision guided weapons and/or drones.
