Yep that's the one I'm sick of hearing. Its an excuse to defend murders and psychopaths. Nothing can justify these actions, that's why war needs to be fought face to face.

Yes sir thats all it is.

Another question, would you rather they had erred on the side of caution, made a mistake, and then been killed themselves?
