<FONT color=lightblue><B>I was going to say someth
Since we were going off on a tangent in the "Pilot Crew Check In" thread, I decided to make a new one (even though it's related to the morality thread)
Mjr. Whoopass said:Since I wanted to avoid killing humans, I may not have signed up to fight in WC4. I wouldn't have objected to fighting the Kilrathi or Nephilim though.
Maj. Striker said:Ok...you're going to have to explain this. Why is killing Nephilim or Kilrathi so much easier then killing humans? You'd better have some good logic for this.
The Kilrathi had wanted to wipe out or enslave humanity. When we first contacted them we tried to establish peaceful relations, but we were met with violence. I would've approved of us establishing a friendship with the Kilrathi if they had shown a desire for peaceful relations. However, they attacked us in an attempt to enslave or destroy us. I would have no problem killing Kilrathi pilots after this. When they asked for peace, we agreed and in the meantime, they built up their forces in secret to attack. The Kilrathi don't have a word for "surrender" so anyone who treats them with complete trust after WC3 as in their first false "surrender" is making the same mistake over again. I would've even tried friendly relations with the Nephilim if they had showed up with a desire for peaceful coexistance. However, they didn't and came in with their guns blazing. I also wouldn't have a problem with fighting the Nephilim after this either. It's not a matter of "They're different, kill them!", in fact I would be more inclined to say "They're different, love them". However, in the case of the Kilrathi and Nephilim, it was more like: "They're exterminating us, kill them!"Death said:Perhaps because they're aliens, and not his own kind?
"They're different, kill them!" is hardly a new sentiment, for humanity as a whole.
