I will not fire on my fellow American's, that's an unlawful order.
If my commander told me to fire on a civilian, I wouldn't do it. We are soldiers, bred and designed to engage ENEMIES of the united states, don't
get DOMESTIC confused with American citizens, the domestic issue could very well be a very dangerous and violent gang killing people in a certain part
of the city. In that case, YES, I would help out my fellow American and take out the domestic terrorist who are terrorizing our fellow citizens.
No, do not turn this statement around an say, will what if they LIE and say peaceful Americans ARE the violent gangs, because today's soldiers are
smarter then yesterdays average joe, we could tell the difference.
This is actually the wrong place to ask this question, why? MORE the a couple of ATS members think our nations military are robots, design to kill at
a moments notice, yet they fail to understand one thing,
THEY ARE NOT MILITARY SO HOW COULD THEY EVER KNOW WHAT WE WOULD DO????
They don't, thus their answer means nothing. Clearly this question was aimed at current and former military on this site.
But, I guess this was aimed at everybody, but its hard to gauge unless you've been in and see how things go down. To suggest otherwise is foolish
and I wouldn't be surprised if a poster quotes me and says, "well its a hypothetical scenario, I don't have to be military to answer", I guess,
its your opinion after all, just don't speak for the military as a whole, speak FOR YOURSELF.
I would never shoot an unarmed, armed citizen of America. This country is my family, my fellow military members on ATS are my brothers and sisters in
arms. We are one.
