Ok heres the situation: 2 Soldiers are just standing around. They pretty much have standard clothing and equpiment on and a normal helmet. About 20 kids run up to them and from about 20 yards away, start hurling fist sized rocks at them. The soldiers respond by first firing a 40mm riot grenade (or bean bag.... im not sure) that hits one guy and gives him a rather nasty gash on teh head. They go back and throw mroe rocks and the guy throws a flashbang grenade about 20 yards away from the kids and they run off. People on my home forum say: The soldier shouldnt have done anything and have let the kids throw rocks at him. (thats exactly what they said) I say: soldiers were fully justified in their response. Notice how i didnt say which country this is in so :P cant argue anything but the situation :D Which view is correct?
