As I understand it, the original interpretation (as they apparently
still read it in Judaism) is "You shall not murder". There is a
difference between killing and murder; *most* people would call
soldiers killers, but not murderers (this is particularly open to
interpretation if you hit Berkeley on a Saturday afternoon). A lot of
the Old Testament are about the various wars by the Jews against those
people God has commanded them to fight (Canaanites, for example).
