A reasonable and humane thing for a soldier (naval aviator) to say. How can you fault a man for saying that? He had qualms and he did his duty. What is your point?
"He had qualms and he did his duty. What is your point?" He knew that the collateral damage from dropping napalm on villages was wrong. Yet he continued doing it.Shakespeare and Greek playwrights and many have dealt with the profound moral issue of doing the right thing vs doing what you are told.Of course childe dearth bluster sets the tone on this board with his infinite childishness so he can respond with his de vere scam.
