No one said you had to kill your attacker. I think the question was 'to what extent will you go to prevent harm from a real attacker'
To the most of what I have been reading, most say that they will us enough force to stop him but would hurt the oponent rather be hurt themselfs.
Personally I believe in the old Haiku "Don't start nothing there will be nothing'
what scenario could you paint where you would be given that choice? When do I ever have to choose let myself be hurt or hurt my attacker? Once I have gained dominance over my attacker, I choose to cause major harm or not. I choose not.
