You are a military leader who has just been notified by your personnel that they are receiving fire from an enemy force hidden within the confines of a nearby village in Afghanistan. You have noted that the weaponry used by the enemy force is formidable and defies military advancement strategies. You know that if you and your personnel move from your protected position that there is a strong possibility that the enemy will destroy your entire unit.
Consider these moral and ethical issues: Should you radio for air or artillery support? If so, should those weapons be unleashed with the entire village as the target with the possibility of innocent civilians being killed? What about the wanton destruction of the village?
Discuss your response and rationale.
