An Army Medic, who is both an armed solider and a healer: Is he part of a problem, or of a solution?
Some may say he is fulfilling a support role, or in other words, helping to 'enable' the combat. Imagine a branch of armed forces without healthcare. Would anyone join them? Would wars be fought if the soldiers knew no help was available to them?
Yet I don't think wounded soldiers generally return to battle, at least not immediately, and I don't believe that saving lives or aiding the hurt could ever be considered innately wrong.
What about a United Nations medic? They are supposed to be neutral peacekeepers, but they could also be considered a resource.
I'd like to hear other's thoughts on this matter.
