You started off by saying there was no difference between killing someone on the street and killing someone while in an army (assuming battle), then proceeded to state what some differences are.

The result for the dead person is definitely the same, but there are large differences between killing an armed force member while you are in part of an opposing armed force and killing some random guy on the street. Society determines when it is understandable or acceptable to kill a person and they do that via laws. Society. government, and laws are conceptual, but it is what we follow.

You are right though that morality and law are not always similar. Clear cases of actual immoral laws exist in the world. To claim there is no difference between those things because the end result is the same (a dead man) is wrong.


Whose society though? Each nation is a sovereign power unto itself with it's own culture, viewpoints, laws, language, history , and morals. The concept of international law was false the second it was coined. No other nation has the right to infringe upon the actions of another. And to do so is nothing less then bullying . Who are we to say what North Korea can and can't do? No one that's who. We have no right to do so.

Sometimes we may feel the obligation to play world police. And indeed we may have to play the world police but that does not give the U.N the high ground. When we resort to sanctions and armed conflict we are lowering ourselves to the level of North Korea. Now don't get me wrong I have no problem with getting my hands dirty . But I am not going to pretend I am anymore right then anyone else with blood and dirt on my hands. The popular side of the war is not automatically the legal and right side ya know.


Anything that not related to ((Ancient)) Roman Empire will be Obliterate!

Have you forgotten what Marcus Octavius said from Highlander the Search for Vengeance!

The Strong will rule the world!

I just solved Global Warming.
We wait until North Korea starts raining nukes on the cities.
The resultant atmospheric ash creates a cooling nuclear winter.
Renewing the Polar Ice.
