Dumb question great answer
A GREAT ANSWER TO A DUMB QUESTION:
Katie Couric, while interviewing a Marine sniper, asked: "What do you feel when you shoot a terrorist?"
The Marine shrugged and replied: "Recoil." (Hard to fault a Marine that?s that eloquent!)
Not sure why you think it is a dumb question.
Good question and good answer.
I agree w/Ugly. It's a dumb question and a great answer. It's dumb because what's the guy supposed to say? It's also dumb because how does the sniper know a "terrorist" is on the other end (that assumes a lot)? So, she's planting words in his mouth.
Exactly, she was fishing for the answer she wanted. You should not ask questions like that to a professional soldier whos job it is to protect our country by killing the enemy.
I wouldn't go that far ugly. I would say his job is to follow orders for which he is getting paid just like an employee on any other job. Anything beyond that is a political statement where you can find just as many people disagree with you as you would find to agree with you..

You and me can quit our jobs whenever we want he cant. He had to swear an oath to protect this country against all enemies. He does have the right to ignore orders that he feels are wrong.
