    Default Right and Wrong mk2- Scar's reaction - Understandable?

    do you think that scar's reaction to the Ishball incident is understandble or just plain wrong?

    what would you do in his situation and why? say for example Aliens killed most of the population of your country. would you go on a Rampage and attemp to kill them all? or would you go about it in a sensible and diplomatic fashion?

    Well, Scar's reaction to the massacre of the Ishbalan people is really just a sign of his character and how the event itself changed him. It's more of an emotional outburst than a rational systematic elimination of the Alchemists.

    I'm not going to argue that his desire for revenge is incorrect, but whether or not a given individual would act upon that impulse would vary considerably. In Scar's case, not only was did his character allow him to justify his revenge, but he also inherited the two tattoos from his brother, granting him power that was not held by others. Indeed if this power was also held by another who desired revenge, that person may or may not have used the power, as it is viewed by the Ishbalans as blasphemy against Ishbala. It is hence why Scar says that he has abandoned his God in search of his own personal vengeance; this goes back to my first point, that it's an emotional outburst and not a rational decision.

    To me, it seems as though he is being way to systematic about it to be an emotional outburst, I think he sees the state alchemists as demons on the Earth for all the atrocities that they committed in Ishval and they must be destroyed to rid the word of "evil". Also I'm not sure he abandoned his god, I say this because I thought the basis of his alchemy stops at deconstruction. I thought I heard them say that it is frowned upon in his religion to reconstruct because they see that as something only their god is allowed to do.

    Vengeance is in itself not evil so I don't believe it was wrong. However what is done is done and no one can bring them back. Scars' reaction was very understandable and I know I would do the same thing if I had the power to do so and was in the same situation. To him it doesnt matter who was involved, just kill them all to make sure anyone who was involved was...terminated.

    Tough Question this one. I can't say I wouldn't do the same if in the same position, though I would have extended my list of targets to the Chain of command as well though.

    yea i see where ya comin from however Scar was not that nice. Scar killed not only people from the war but ohter innocent alchemists such as the Elric bros and that is not justified

    I agree, it is a very emotional outburst. If he truly cared about everyone, it's understandable. Maybe he himself just felt very threatened and went into a self-defense mode.
    You aren't rational in situations like this. If someone broke into my home and was about to hurt someone I like and there was a knife near me, I'd use it on them. It just doesn't work rationally. I wouldn't think "I'll quickly help them and get them out of here, then we'll call the police" - no, I'd follow instinctive reactions.

    I don't think what he did was justified and it could have been handled better, but he probably lost it. If he was to ever wake up from what he was doing, he may very well be traumatised.
