Very different thing: In Army training, you're learning to perform
actions, not being tested on how you'd honestly react in a given
The correct military analogy would be this:
You're told that the soldier standing next to you is a traitor and must
be shot. You're handed a loaded gun. There's a BIG difference between a
willingness (in training) to say "bang" and a willingness (in reality)
to perform the execution.
