soo, let me try to understand what you are saying. Just because they are in a warzone it's ok to shoot at anything that moves?
And you know what, I'd never want to be in the same military with someone like you either, ROE is pretty simple to follow, yet you think it's ok to shoot at an injured person who clearly was no threat to them? Or then you just have no idea what ROE is in the 1st place.

that is the only situation where use of lethal force is allowed, now tell me, did that injured guy on the ground match the description "will either kill or injure someone if he is not stopped immediately" Umm no? He was there lying on the ground obviously hurt badly.
Yeah it probably is emotionally very stressing to be there, but does it give you the right to tease injured animals, shoot people who are clearly not going to attack you and do other stuff like that? Soldiers should be ready for the emotional stress, it's a big part of their job.
