I agree, killing a man who is shooting back is one thing, executing a bound man on his knees is a completely different matter all together.
If the executed were the ones soley responsible for their buddies deaths, then there are 4 less militants we have to worry about. If not, then 4 noncombatants died because we needed to exact revenge. touchy subject.
