      Soldiers aren't all guilty of things, most are innocent themselves.

      When you become a soldier, you become a machine, unable to think, feel, you get treated like shit, you know what awaits you out there, on the battelfield.It would be my honor to test my skills out on the warzone, to prove what I am,not a machine, i would die for anyone who wishes to have a happy and peacefull life.

      Mos Nazi soldiers where gihting for Germany and not Hitler and the party, only soldiers like the SS and high ranking officers would have commited those crimes. The odds of 50 out of 100 soldiers being innocent is very high.

      and if you went with the blues, you could say you killed Anne Frank to save 1000 SS soldiers. It didn't say those 1000 people were innocent.

      It is completely situational. So lets say it's 1915, you are a german soldier and at your side is this young boy Adolf Hitler. And he seems innocent because he is scared by a fucking war and thus sits silently in the trench while a hundred british or french soldiers run at you. Your reaction were to protect the innocent guy next to you not knowing what he will do in the future.

      If you kill 100 enemy soldiers to save the innocent it doesn't mean the other 1000 are going to die. If I picked blue, then the innocent wouldn't die as there would be a different scenario. At least I can kick ass 100 more times, against my enemies.

      Wow, you forgot something, you fools, our soldiers have to do both all of the time. Also, @Dostya, you seem to think that soldiers are slaves. That is offensive by itself. Furthermore, @nigg, you live up to your name, because you are a soulless desensitized moron. I'd feel grief for killing hitler (only a tiny bit though). But killing 100 men who are defending their homeland? you sicken me. Also, I'm saving 1000 people, probably from my country, so my neighbors and friends, for the death of one person who I probably killed on accident. Also, if this our country negotiating with terrorists, which I don't agree with, it could be a trade for someone's information for the release of several hostages.

      You do realize every single Nazi soldier had a life ate home. Nearly all of them had families, children, Christmas, Birthdays, and dogs and cats. They were human beings. You'd kill 100 people who were drafted to the German military against their will to save a girl who made history for dying. You are a complete fucking retard. How about instead, you kill 100 ISIS soldiers, who were born and raised to kill Americans, who never had any family life, or traditions besides beheading, to save 1 little boy who is going to be raised into this horror. Sounds good, huh?

    Shit. I accidentally hit the wrong button!!! The enemy is only the "enemy" because we say they are. Most of the enemy has family, a husband or wife, and maybe kids that are waiting for them to return. As evil as something they might do is, would it be any less evil to kill them?

    Words like "innocent" and "enemy" are all subjective to our own assumptions and bias. I feel like this is just a badly worded, and not well thought out, question and it would all come down to the particular scenario with all of it's changing variables to make an actual choice here. Though, in general, I'd say if you weigh one for one thousand versus one hundred for one, there's only one reasonable choice.

    I chose blue. People chose red because they said Nazis could be stopped, and all other bad clans, but in order to end the Nazis, you have to kill more than 100. There will still be leaders to make sure their clan doesnt fall, so choosing blue is better because you save 1,000 people still.
