Answers

I believe the answer is A. because they could be arrested for disobeying orders.

The correct answer to this question would be alternative A)"A Soldier must always follow orders."

Shumard would agree that "a soldier must always follow orders", regardless of what they are. He states that he didn't want to destroy the city, or kill anyone, but it had to be done, because he was ordered to, and it's not his place to question orders.

The correct answer is A) A soldier must always follow orders.

The principle associated with the Nuremberg Trials would Shumard agree would be "A soldier must always follow orders."

The following statement was made by Robert H. Shumard, a crewman of the B-29 that dropped the atomic bomb on Hiroshima:

"Nobody actually wants to cause the destruction we caused. But it was through necessity rather than a wanton type of destruction. It was something that had to be done."

And that is the job of a soldier. To follow orders without question. That is how things work in the militia.

The Nuremberg principles were a set of guidelines to determine what was a war crime. There were seven. This quote refers to principle four, "superior orders," that said: "the fact that a person acted pursuant to the order of his government or superior, does not relieve him from responsibility under international law, provided a moral choice was in fact, possible to him."

I'm guessing A soldier must always follow orders. Sorry if I'm wrong.
