Deep waters here, but I will plunge in.
I believe that people who have been murdered require vengeance - both for the soul of that person, and for their family.
But I also believe that no-one has the right to kill anyone else - and that includes execution.
So I am left in a difficult position.
I wonder how many killers are mentally ill - I would think they all are.
In which case, they need help, not execution.
And when it comes to war.....too difficult, except to say that all war is evil and the perpetrators of all wars are evil (or misguided) and that
soldiers who are forced to kill are not acting on their own initiative.
