Re: Snape and Dumbledore: Joint Character Analysis

My opinion is that decision should have been Snape's to die for the cause and not Dumbledore's to sacrifice him for the same.
Who is to say it wasn't Snape's decision? Snape would have died for Lily -- or protecting Harry for Lily, and that is just exactly what he did. Also, as pertaining to Dumbledore, Dumbledore knew people would have to be sacrificed for the "Greater Good," it was a chance Dumbledore was willing to take himself, and a chance he assumed those who joined the Order were willing to take as well. Snape knew that his life was always in danger, and he took the risk that all other Order members (and Death Eaters for that matter) took when joining the War.
