Interesting subject.
It depends. I'm all for cloning organs.
If you're talking about cloning for the military (ie. super-soldiers) then no.
It really depends on what you're talking about.

Why not a military! That would be a great idea!

It just feels... wrong. I'd rather see a robotic military. Knowing what we know about machines, artificial intelligence and computer systems, it seems safer then a military of clones. I know Star Wars makes it seem like the superior option (lol), but a human is more likely to go nucking futs and start slaughtering then a machine. Machines (as they are now) can only do exactly what they're programmed and built to do. Any bug or problem with a machine or a computer program is human error.
I feel self-aware, 'thinking' programs are still a long way off.

With programmed robots, the problem is, they be programmed to do ANYTHING. That's just the problem. Id rather cloned humans going nucking futs then millions od robots programmed for some tyrranical purpose.

Couldn't cloned humans just as easily be used for tyrannical purposes?

There is always the ability to have free will with any human, however, robots are made for one purpose. Humans at least have feelings to know what is right and wrong sub-conscientiously

Not if they're cloned. Why would you create a cloned super-soldier with feelings? You may as well just use regular soldiers.
