I get that, but to yell at a crowd “The first to flee is a traitor!” leaves open the opportunity for one guy to take the hit for the others and then everybody is right behind him because, hey, you didn’t say anything about the second person to flee.

Say it my way and the clearer message is that we’re all in this mess together, and only a traitor would abandon those who stand and fight. All who flee are traitors.
