You people are heartless.
Most of you haven't a clue.
I mean I really tried to put myself in your shoes, bud as far as it is possible for someone not military or police... and then it got even more complicated. are "they" (whoever this is) really that bad that they deserve to die or are they just in the same situation that I am (in my roleplay as bud)? so there are two more or less good people on both sides with the same fears and the same hopes... that's sick... but that is the concept of war and it is always one against one and the death of the other whoever it will be is NEVER justified...
Heartless? Hey, im not the one comforting a murderer!
All I can say is, I hope anyone considering joining the U.S. military these days takes a good long look at how our past few wars began and the deception that was used to create them. My honest opinion is that if someone is aware of this and knowingly joins the military--especially given the current likelihood of being deployed for combat--they should understand that many will consider any killing they do to be nothing less than murder If they are truly defending this country and it's population from a threat, then it is self-defense. We can't just sit back and let someone kill us or overthrow our government. But these obvious "made-for-profit" wars result in unjustifiable loss of life. In my opinion, blind faith and loyalty to a government is not patriotic or admirable when said government has been proven to be deceitful in it's justification for war. The government does not make a country. The people make the country. If one wants to be patriotic, then one should refuse to service govt. officials who have proven themselves to be treasonous and corrupt.

Heartless? Hey, im not the one comforting a murderer!, so how exactly am i heartless?
Im just saying how it is,i dont hate this person which is the OP, i just dont see what he expects to get from saying what he has? do you?
I wouldnt be suprised if most of the posters on this thread agreeing with the OP are americans, because ive noticed the Americans have a very low tolerence towards murder,as if it doesnt bother them, just another ol'thing.
What would you have done in this situation genius?
he was in hostile territory
Don't make a hypocritical statement if you don't understand the circumstance...
