Kreon believes if he does not kill Antigone he will no longer be one of the best rulers that people will look up too. This quote is important because it explains how Kreon begins to commit hubris.

An example is “Later we heard that Strunk died somewhere over Chu Lai, which seemed to relive Dave Jensen of an enormous weight.” Dave Jensen feels guilty for not killing Lee Strunk and putting him out of his misery. It seems as if the soldiers are in a damned if you don’t situation. Jensen would probably have felt guilty if he killed Strunk as per their original pact, but not killing his friend made him feel guilty, too.
