Soldiers in killing people shocker

[An American officer who had fought in Korea] recalled how the US artillery fired some leaflet-loaded shells set for high burst over a steep-sloped valley in North Korea. The surrender tracts floated gently down onto the forested ravine. Moments after they landed, one or two Chinese infantrymen appeared from the trees, picked up the papers, and studied them. Sure enough, they started in the direction of the UN command headquarters. The leaflets promised a safe conduct to the rear and good treatment as prisoners of war until peace could be restored. Minutes later, he observed from his artillery post that hundreds of enemy soldiers were striding south. Finally, there appeared to be two or three thousand of them.

‘What happened then?’ I asked.

‘Oh,’ he laughed uneasily, ‘we reloaded our guns with antipersonnel ammunition and wiped out the whole lot.’”

It has been a pleasure to take part in such a wide-ranging and deeply informed debate, with so many thoughtful and original contributions from all parts of the House.
