I think that judging people and their decisions sometimes is just too easy for us. I mean we really do not know what anybody has been through and what are their experiences, but for some reason we act like we know. Accusing a soldier of not knowing what are the costs of difficult decisions is just not appropriate as he might have seen so many deaths that it would not be possible to count.
I think that moral dilemmas are really difficult even for soldiers. As we have seen in the movie – the soldiers who were responsible for pressing the button to air strike did it with tears in their eyes. And also – it was really hard to make this decision. Politics and soldiers had to do it, but nobody wanted to decide and enforce it alone. They kind of divided the responsibility.
