** One of the Seals left behind to monitor looks like he's about two seconds away from bursting into tears. Or killing himself.

* Hummel threatening to murder a hostage if Mason and Goodspeed refuse to surrender. The man is breaking down helplessly with a gun pointed at his head and the two survivors are forced to listen to the whole thing. Thankfully, Hummel doesn't pull the trigger.



* Sergeant Crisp's death; he was the only soldier other than Baxter and Hummel himself to express any misgiving about killing an entire city of civilians, and was a longtime comrade to the general. When pressed by Frye and Darrow to arrest Hummel, he has an attack of the conscience before reluctantly approaching the general, only to have a pistol pointed to his throat. He is completely helpless when the shooting starts, and his final look at the general is one bordering on regret that is has come to this.

* Major Baxter's death also counts. He stays loyal to Hummel when their plan falls apart, and when tempted by Frye and Darrow when they mutiny, it seems as though he is about to betray his best friend. Instead, he remains loyal and attacks the traitorous marines, only to die with his friend in an act of SenselessSacrifice.

** The FBI personnel watching the entire thing on their monitors, absolutely helpless to stop it. Half of them are ready to lose it completely when they see the aftermath.
