God is someone who chooses and knows who will fight this. Don't worry about it, because god will take care of those who don't abandon him.

In a world filled with evil people, sometimes war is necessary to prevent even greater evil. If Hitler had not been defeated by World War II, how many more millions would have been killed? If the American Civil War had not been fought, how much longer would African-Americans have had to suffer as slaves?
War is a terrible thing. Some wars are more "just" than others, but war is always the result of sin (Romans 3:10-18). At the same time, Ecclesiastes 3:8 declares, "There is "a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace." In a world filled with sin, hatred, and evil (Romans 3:10-18), war is inevitable.

God knows the heart, just like a lot of those that are in military, they have to kill or be killed, they're fighting for our country, they come back with mental problems, depression, etc. Sometimes we will react on instinct, like when it comes to family, if someone is trying to hurt them, your naturally gonna defend them and that may have to be the death of someone but God knows we don't do it with intention, He is slow to anger, patient, and willing to forgive.

Well I don't know,But I hope God would expect us to React in kind, because for my survival that's what I would do. From what I've been taught, God will not turn his cheek to satan.

Romans 12: 17 says, "Return evil for evil to no one.Provide fine things in the sight of all men." Therefore, God would not want us to retaliate, but rather take a peaceful stance on the matter. 1 Corinthians 4:9-13 also admonishes us to have a peaceful mind. And Romans 12:18 directly states to "be peaceable with all men." If we rely on Jehovah, we will be certain that he will exact judgement on evildoers. (Romans 12:19)

Hope I helped!

God has given us free will, so we can choose what is best in certain situations. Not every situation is the same and can be dealt with the same. Some people will respond to love and forgiveness, where as others will just hurt or kill you no matter what. You have to decide, based on each situation. Your inner guidance and god will let you know what to do.
