ITS THOU SHALL NOT COMMIT MURDER ACTUALLY!
Killing in self defense is fine. Thou shall not kill is a command to not MURDER someone. Soldiers are not held to account for their actions in
defense of themselves and others either.
Does this still apply to all international soldiers EVEN if they are not in their homeland?
I understand that by you saying 'In defense of themselves and others'
you could argue that international soldiers may be seen as liberating
others' countries... but that's only in line with their own view - Not necessarily the people of that country they are "liberating".
It's a well known fact that American & British soldiers are killing Taliban & Al Qaeda (I was in fact a British soldier)... but the Taliban & Al
Qaeda don't think they are wrong, so who is wrong for killing who? (not based on your personal views or the views of your nation).
I think it boils down to - there is no right or wrong, there is just 'stuff that happens' and that the verse in question is a load of tosh along
with the book of fibs it came from.
That rule applies to ALL SOLDIERS the world over according to the Bibles teachings. A soldier goes where he i s told to and does so under his leaders
and not of his own will. Most of those people killed are killed fairly under the geneva conventions due to them not being in uniforms. Its not a
matter of them being right or wrong. There is a right and wrong though. Suicide bombings are wrong,opening fire on civilians is wrong unless in self
defense. And you may not see the bible as a guide for good morals but alot of people do.
And I was also responding to the OP not you by the way.
