NeckBreaker, thats an imature and naive question, not to mention very personal and just a tad bit rude.(from this old soldiers perspective). All kidding aside (as in some of the replies)The only people that would freely discuss in an unrestricted forum with stangers would be sociopaths.
Just supposing someone answered yes to your question,,,Why on earth would you want to know this? And what you you ask him once you found out? K-

Reply & addition to Kmans comment :

Neckbreaker, the questioned you asked is so very personal. The issues surounding the taking of a life goes beyond pulling a trigger.

Life is so precious,taking a life ruins a person,trials them forever.

Kman, I have a freind who was a soldier. A nice guy who always talked about how cool shooting people would be. To kill with a government approval...

Well adding to your great comment towards Neckybreaker. My friend did a tour of Rwuanda. Stacking bodies of rotting women & children wiped the shooting fantasy very quickly.

I had a friend in the military, served in the panama invasion and the gulf.

I never asked that question out of respect for him. He did talk to me about it, it was more of a confessional/get it off his chest sort of thing.

I felt very honored that he trusted me enough to talk to me about it. I as his friend did the only thing I could-listen.

I in no way got the sense that his taking of human life was anything he was proud of or wanted to discuss with anyone.

Therefore, I have to second(or third) the opinion that you will not get any serious responses to this question. So nyahhh [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/tongue.gif[/IMG]

Who says speaking about this is wrong?
Where is that written. If you do a job where taking a life might occur, then what is the big deal?

Talking about is not wrong.

Discusing the effects on people is not wrong.

Taking a life is not always wrong.

It may occur, but it is a big deal.

Those who suffer during the night,seeing all of their kills. Snipers/soldiers/Black ops Guys/assassines/murderers/ all talk about it.

It is obvious that life means nothing to you if you treat killing as NOt being a big deal.

I have never killed anyone and I hope I never do, but I have died on a few occasions.
