    I understand and respect your views.



    Quote:
    When in the army, there were people there who specifically said they joined, because they wanted to kill.



    Quote:
    When I was called up to go to Iraq, I was in my late twenties and a couple of TA lads (part time) and said they were going to kill some terrorists. I chided them and one came back without his left foot.



    Quote:
    We had a civilian worker, who we all had to go under a cement bunker. We were being mortared. There were another 2 squaddies who tried to kick him out 'for the leg room'. I stated he wasn't going anywhere.



    Quote:
    For me to kill someone, it would have to be someone in my house in the middle of the night. I know I would be capable if I had the chance to do it.



    Quote:


1)A desire to serve their country
2)Family tradition
3)Because they are poor and don't have a better way for college etc...
4)They just want to kill someone
