    He would accept the responsibility by killing the enemy. If the meat shield is in the way oh well.

    It is exactly this kind of attitude that gives our enemy's comfort and ties the hands of our troops.

    If this kind of attitude prevailed in WWII, we could not have won. We would have been to busy trying to avoid civilian casualty's.

    This is war, war is ugly and brutal. If you are not willing to go all the way for victory, don't get in the way.

    No one is negating the action. We are not talking cops and robbers here. We are talking war.

    So we have an anonymous vote for Side B. Probably some lib from here.

    If you're walking in the street and then somebody grabs an innocent passersby, takes out a pistol and starts shooting at you - you have every right to draw your pistol out and fire back.

    If the innocent gets hit, it's tragic, but it should be obvious that your life is in danger for every moment that you do not fire.

    It's a guest vote, not anonymous.

    Let's hope your gun has enough 'oomph' to shoot right through the shield.....

    hit the shield enough and it'll just turn into a dead weight
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    Now you have a Guest and one of the original forum members voting for Side B. A full spectrum.

    And I don't tremble on my reasoning.
