I think I missed the point of this one. You and your companions (who are unaccountably absent from the room's description) are hiding behind a fallen pillar and fighting the "infidels". So it's a war. But who the two sides are, what they're fighting about, and what it is that kills everyone in eleven turns or so is somewhat unclear.
If there's more to this than examining your surroundings, shooting at the enemy and missing, and waiting for the end, let me know.
