“Would you kill a POW (prisoner of war)?” Dr. Shannon French once asked a Soldier.
“Of course not,” the Soldier replied.
French then elaborated, describing the hypothetical POW as someone who had, as a sniper, just killed most of the Soldier’s platoon.
“Well, I should hope I wouldn’t kill him,” the Soldier replied again, this time with a qualifier.
