Broad topic, so I'll answer equally broadly. I would like to see them used to replace "front line" troops (whatever that means these days), and less for covert and precision ops. There are some things that need the precision of a human's touch, and these are one of them.
The thought that they could (have) be (been) used on Americans, whether on American soul or not, is appalling. The REALITY that it is only a matter of time before someone weaponizes one for personal use in the United States is downright terrifying. You can guarantee the second amendment rights folks will be out for that en force.
