I think it is entirely possible. There are too many examples of things that could be seen as brainwashing people to kill in history to ignore it.

People here have ideas for both sides... but I have seen people blow themselves up to kill others along with themselves. Makes one wonder where from had the mastersminds learned to make them do that. People say that Al-Qaeda used this method in Iraq and from them the Talibans (both Afghan and Pakistani) got the 'technology' of creating suicide-bombers. But how did Al-Qaeda develop or learn it? Any ideas?

Yeah I believe it's entirely possible. There are so many ways to influence and change a persons perception of things.

Edit: And I'm talking about a single person being manipulated. Not religion or something like that.

Brainwashed?   i would say any form of cultural conditioning that convinces someone that killing  is the "right"  thing to do  is akin to 'brainwashing' .
Any soldier, anywhere,  , however good his intentions, has been culturally conditioned  to be a killer.

As I was reading the other posts, I was thinking the same thing you posted--soldiers are conditioned to accept the killing of another as something that might be mandatory.

Fortunately I ended up in the medical end of the US Army, rather than the infantry end.

We were all trained and conditioned to kill, should the need arise.  Fortunately, it never arose for me.

Nah, there are plenty of killers out-there whom have never been brainwashed.

What happens to the person doing the killing (as a soldier) is also interesting.  Some are ruined for life, others go on.

Perhaps it has to do with programming?
