Would you, could you?
I was just reading through CNN.com and came across a line that said the Mehdi Army that Us Forces are fighting in Najaf is using ten year olds as militiamen. The first thing that came to my mind was, "what would I do if I were a soldier and a ten year old with a gun tried to kill me?" This question is near impossible to answer without being in the situation but let's give it a spin anyway.
Would you kill the child? Is it enough to know that if you don't you might die?
