HOWEVER, that marine saying "hell yeah, that was awesome, lets do it again" Is seriously messed up in the head. He has a job to do, but saying it is awesome to kill an enemy that isn't even attempting to harm you? Hmm.
Sure, they killed him. Fine. But you don't have to make that comment. That marine makes me semi-ill. I mean, sure, do what you have to do, get it done, but pray for that man's soul, not say "hell yeah, that was awesome"
Plus, that marine looked like some redneck farmboy that grew up taught to kill.

Laws are not silent during war. Infantrymen are trained about the laws of war before and after being trained to kill. They are experts on these laws. The U.S. Soldier has more classroom training than field training on how to kill. This is so the U.S. leads the way on following the Laws of War.
