WTF is wrong with you people, thinking soldiers are slaves?! I bet you don't even know a soldier, let alone seen one up close.
There is a difference between lawful and unlawful orders, no matter what country your in. As for her or any civilian being the enemy, wrong. They are
non combatants. No professional soldier is going to willingly kill a non combatant, don't confuse hollywood with real life.
The term enemy is an over used hollywood term. It is an ignorant mind set. Some thing that developed over generations, and will take many more to
Any one who has been to combat will agree, the opponent or "enemy" as has been used, is never to be under estimated. They change routines and fight
for a cause like any one else. I hear people call Iraqis animals, or Palestinians and Saudis the same, but they are people. Like you and I, raised in
an enviornment and exposed to conditioning such a propaganda like any one in the world.
If one doesn't know different, than how they were raised, then how can they be expected to know better. We don't know why they are the way they are,
and won't until having been in their shoes.
Hate is ignorance, I never hated the insurgents. I sure as heck got really po'ed at them and wanted vengence, yes. But to hate some one, hate is
evil. Hate is genocide and ethnic cleansing, hate is prejudice and so on.
Ignorance straight up and simple as that.
We are here to deny ignorance, and we can not do that, until we have denied our own.
