    I made no assertion of it being helpful.
    So you would say that if either or got the magic button they would genocide the other side? They would both kill every man, woman and child on the other side?

    That's not what I'm saying at all. But to read the question is to imagine the genocide of two people as part of the four options on the table. I really have no idea because it's not a situation that can arise. I find the imagining of something impossible not very useful or informative.

    Edit: I assume the question has a purpose though. Maybe you can go into that?

    Just a thought experiment, to each their own if you do not enjoy them.
    The purpose of the question was to get a sense of peoples opinion on what extreme action they think one side or the other would take if they could.
