You want what he could have done different? I don't know, not killed him. There's your answer. Like some others have said in this thread, he could have not killed him.

When you say "nerve gas," that means something else entirely - Sarin, mustard gas, that type of thing. AKA Weapon of Mass Destruction, of the exact type we were accusing Saddam of having/using.


Simply possessing such a weapon would violate all the treaties to which the US is a party - actually using it would completely void any moral ground the US could stand on - ever.


While viscerally satisfying to contemplate the "nuke'em/gas'em" tactical approach, such an action would completely undermine every single strategic goal we have.


What they need to do is just blare Pat Boone's "In a Metal Mood" album.

Yeah you already made that clear.

What I want to know is how you would have gone about not killing him? What would you suggest he should have done?

You keep saying how wrong it is, tell us how you would have made it right.

You see he is faking he's dead, he makes no attempt to surrender, you don't know if the guy is holding on to a granade under his clothes. At that point I don't care what the media's gonna think, I wanna live and this terrorists would kill me and everyone else in the room in a second..

You are in a war zone. You don't have time to think about it..you can't hesitate or you might be coming home in a box.

It's easy to say handcuff him and pin him up with the rest of the prisoners while sitting at your computer..but when your there and your life is on the line it's shot first and let allah sort it out.

Yer the only one who has answered my question as to "what would you do in that Marine's situation"...

I say you go back and read all my posts then, cause Ive stated what I would do a couple of times.......

the guys friend was killed the day before and he was shot i the face the al quadia hand book even says if you are injured fake dead and kill everyone that comes near you even a medic if he comes to help you. But we still need to be careful and sensitive  cuz now his family will want to kill US troops ....but i still am behind the marine completely         (even though Army is better) we need the dang press out of there now
