I'm so glad I don't understand this ;-)

Should you decide not to give someone something based on the fact that
you either don't like them, or don't like what they'll do with the
thing you give them.

I think the standard answer to your question is that you get the enemy
to *surrender* first, patch him up enough to move him, and then stick
him in a POW camp for the duration, or until you get something in return
for releasing him.

I would never patch someone up so he can go back to *shooting* at me, or
my friends.  Never.

Yet doctors all abide by the hypocratic(sp?) oath.

Although, I've heard that in the US taking the oath is now an optional part of graduation for doctors.  Wikipedia seems to agree but without a citation: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hippocratic_Oath
