Capital Punishment

I agree with Joe. The most striking part of the movie was when the boy was executed. He was a minor doing what he thought was best for his family. Even though this was a war-like time, I found another correlation to one of the letters that was presented in class on Friday stating that the United States and Iran are the only two countries in the world that execute minors. This matter is incredibly disturbing. Whether in a time of war or not, no minor should ever be executed, let alone fight in wars. Thoughts?
