  • Yes, killing during war is murder.

    Any willful killing of another human being is murder, so it stands to reason that killing during a war is technically murder. However, it would be an instance where people might feel that it is justifiable, because it is being required by the government and being done, unfortunately, for a purpose, such as in self-defense.

  • Killing during war is often murder

    Colonizers and other invaders who seek to steal land, steal natural resources, and enslave or otherwise subjugate local peoples in their native lands are guilty of murder when they kill those people. This is true regardless of whatever excuses and justifications are created and disseminated by the governments of the colonizers or other invaders. Politicians who run governments have often ordered invasions in order to enrich munitions manufacturers. Much of the bombing in Indochina had little to do with defeating the local peoples, who were cast as enemies and characterized as Communists, and everything to do with turning the owners of munitions companies into multi-millionaires. In cases such as colonization and invasions to steal land and natural resources and to enslave or subjugate local peoples, killing in war is murder.

  • Murder as in unjust taking of life. Calling someone you've never met an enemy just because you are told to.

    Killing people under the cloak of war is no better than going up to someone on the street and putting a bullet through their head.
    Soldiers are used by their governments as weapons to kill the soldiers being used as weapons by the enemy government. People are put on the battlefield and are arbitrarily told that this other group on the battlefield, people whom they have never met, are their enemy. They don't get to know these people and are ordered to kill these people.
    Meanwhile, the soldiers on both sides are really just people all the same with dreams, loved ones, and joy to experience in life.

    Firebombings of cities murder scores of people who are just trying to live their lives as the people on in the opposing country are.

    What a horrible thing it is to mindlessly follow orders, dehumanize others, and call those that you do not know your enemy. When really, the real enemies of the soldiers are the leaders safe in their war rooms using other human lives as pawns in a game of international chess.

  • This needs clarification

    We go to war way to easily, it should be an absolute last resort. When we do go to war we must under no circumstances kill non-combatants, that is murder. Yes that includes dropping bombs on a town to catch a bad guy but end up killing innocent people in the process. Just following orders is also never an excuse and anyone involved, the ones giving the orders as well as those following them should be prosecuted. Why is it so wrong when our enemies do it but not when we do? We have such a double standard when it comes to war.

  • Taking of Another Human's Life is MURDER

    Most definitely. I don't care what reason is applied to the act, the taking of an individual's life is murder inside and out. The standards were clearly set for us during the Bible days. Thou Shall Not KILL. So, every time this act was done (killing) it was deemed as what it was-killing, murder, or whatever else you want to call it, but the end result is somebody DIED at the hand of another.

  • Murder definition: "the unlawful premeditated killing of one human being by another"

    War, although is not unlawful, it is premeditated killing of humans at the hand of other humans. It ticks two out of three boxes. Obviously these people are fighting patriotically and I respect them for it, but at the end of the day a person dies at there hands. So many people experience guilt and trauma after because of what they had to endure, see and DO.

  • Civilians Could Put a Stop to it

    In major conflicts parents let their government conscript their sons whom they have nourished since childhood. According to their governments, when they reach the age of 18 they can be used as canon fodder. Think about it, if the young man is 17 and molested its treated as child abuse. But skip over that line to 18, then the government can abuse him by actually endangering his life by forcing him to fight and kill. The governments excludes the mothers and sisters from this horror so they can breed more young men for the next war. Their so-called enemy does the same thing. Its about time that people reach out to their so called enemies (maybe today's Twitter and social media might be the instrument) and refuse to participate or let their sons participate. Wars breed more wars too - notice the rise of ISIS after our killing of thousands in Iraq. If somehow people don't reach out to each other, there will always be wars.

  • To kill during war is murder

    To kill anything ever is murder,even in war. Of course I'm not saying that soldiers who kill in war are bad. Obviously murder isn't a good thing but it is my opinion that situationally correct murder is not necessarily morally incorrect. Everything that humanity believes to be immoral can be rationalized as an unfortunate but necessary means to an end. Humans kill things all the time yet the majority of other humans don't see it as evil despite the fact that it is actually murder. Essentially,killing during war is murder but when it's rationalized correctly it doesn't have to be a moral crisis.

  • Yes it is murder

    It is wrong and illegal to kill in a faux peace or a real one, so it is wrong and murder to kill in a war that allows people to be selfish, fearful and greedy.
    By doing so your a mass murderer and a psychopathic sociopath.
    War is nothing but organised violence.

  • Anyone who says anything about war and murder should be blown to hell as they are dumb pacifists

    Who the hell would say its murder unless they are uneducated stupid childish pacifists who would be the first to die in war- its the survival of the fittest. Don't say I am wrong or you disrespect all the men and women fighting for you. Disrespectful stupid idiots go suck off corbyn.

  • Murder is individually targeted

    No, I don't believe that is murder. Murder is an individually targeted action. In war, even when you are targeting a specific enemy, it is not a personal action. Instead, the targeting of an enemy is because of their strategic or tactical value on the war as a whole. So instead of being murder, a personal thing, the killing is a state sponsored action.

  • Of course not

    If someone breaks into your house and holds your child at gunpoint and then you kill him, is that murder? A man must do anything it takes to protect his family, himself, his house, and his country. God will not think what you did is wrong. Murder is when you kill an innocent person for your own evil intentions. Is protecting your country evil?

  • Vote for Trump

    Trump stated that if it necessary in his presidency, the US will fire nuclear warheads in order to achieve their goals. Is this not genocide? Obviously, Trump agrees that murder is step when it a necessary step to achieving world peace... Trump believes in genocide; hitler believed in genocide. Trump=Hitler reincarnated. Illuminati confirmed

  • God says its right

    In the bible we see many examples of god telling his disciples to wage war and kill. God never tells us to sin so therefore killing in war cannot be sin. In 1 Samuel 15:3 says, god told king Saul "go attack the Amalekites and totally destroy all that belongs to them.
