I don't agree with that at all. He did kill more Ten Rings members even after he stopped making munitions. He killed Obadiah Stane. The PTSD from New York was about nearly losing his own life, not killing Chitauri. He signed the Accords because he wants the decisions taken out of his own hands - because of him, tens of thousands of innocents were killed in Sokovia. He killed multiple Extremis subjects in IM3, including Brandt, Savin & Killian. He killed Ebony Maw right at the beginning of Infinity War, and the only reason he didn't kill anyone else is that the only one who showed up on Titan was Thanos. He really, really, really does have the heart to end lives.
