I strongly suggest you join up and volunteer for Afganistan deployment. I'd love to see how much ass you kiss when they threaten to cut your head off. Ignorant jerk.

This is common practice to treat a prisoner well, and then threaten that same prisoner, unless he says such things. I harbor no ill will towards this prisoner. I don't know what I would do in the same situation.
You know what you should do as a soldier? Imagine the worst, and prepare agains it.
I was in basic training in 1980 and I was shown a movie where a Lt. told his men to give up and surrender. All of us privates were asked what would you do in this situation? I was the only one of 40 who said, shoot the Lt. and continue to fight. We were never told what was the best response. However, I thought my response was the best. Kill the bastard who said to give up and then fight to the death. None of this crap about, maybe I can live and get out of this later stuff.
Take me prisoner? It won't be easy for you. Run away and live to fight another day? I can see that. But take me prisoner and maybe later I can run away? Not in my mindset,
