    Easier said than done, especially in a close quarters firefight.

    I agree though. Events can happen so quickly that reaction must be instinctive. There is usually no time whatsoever to think about it. It is all decided within a few heartbeats.

    He can't answer questions if he's dead, and he has some questions to answer.
    I agree whole heartedly. Instead of 72 virgins, he'll have to deal with 72 bubbas during his wait for the firing squad.
