If you were enrolled in the military, and your commander ordered you to kill your family, would you do it?




Peace,

Why would your commander order you to kill your family? i would demand an explanation. If it were for the wrong reason, ill probably kill him on the spot.

What a stupid question.....

If you knew anything about the Army you would know that is not a "lawful" order, which you do not have to obey..........

This damn question is too stupid to even respond to. Just had to let you know that.

Are members of the military commanded to kill people?
Do those people have family?
Is it possible that one could be commanded to kill a member of their family?

I was only required to obey "lawful" orders. Ordering me to kill a prisoner would be unlawful. Ordering me to do something suicidally stupid would be lawful but might be ignored.

The order of the military requires obedience without question, does it not?
