|What type of person does it take to be a sniper??
Obviously not someone that has a lot of respect for life, so long as the person they are killing is the "enemy". The "enemy" is non-human. I'm sure there are many rationalizations before they pull the trigger? They are doing it for their country. They are only killing them before they kill you or your friends. That is the nature of "war". They will sleep like a baby after a good head shot. Have you ever wondered what it takes to be a sniper?
Here's an interesting reply to the OP...

uninformed, uncompassionate, idiotic posts I've ever seen here...My husband was a sniper in Viet Nam...a self described "big dumb kid from California"....do you think he never struggled with what the government trained him to do in war? Do you think it didnt take him years to reconcile his soul? I dont think we should have been there, and am among those that think war is a huge racket....but dont disrespect those that did as they were trained, and who thought they were there protecting US...Flag me if you want...but fuck you!
Corked your pistol, Kentuck. BEYOTCH!!!:evil-grin:
Of course he means a military sniper. Hating the military is de riguer at DU.
They're dancing in Chris Kyle's blood over at DU because he dared to promote a book about his experiences as a sniper and was unrepentant about the lives he'd taken. And worse still in the DUmmy's eyes, he started a company that teaches this type of marksmanship to others. They hated him like they hate President Bush.
