And yet beheading prisioners of war is perfectly okay huh.gif


I'm assuming this guy was an insurgent, then who cares, they don't abid why Geneva why should we. Plus, we shouldn't even be taking prisioners, you have to realise them eventually because of human rights protestors, then all that happens is events like that guy who went straight back to Afghanistan and killed a US aid worker the other month.

Make sure they aren't civilians, torture them for info, then kill them. End of story.

You mean that kind of savagery is justified under certain circumstances w00t.gif

You're mistaken Talon; that kind of cowardly behaviour would NOT bring about the 'end of story', but an 'endless story' w00t.gif

Most likely the insurgents, who are happy to murder civilians, yet the first to coplain if their own human rights are abused. As far as I'm concerned the Genva convention does not stand in this war as the insurgents have already stated they have no interest inabiding by it. Therefore, it is a handy cap for us to abid by it also. Prisioners should not be taken, end of story.

It's very unwise to let them dictate the rules! It's exactly what they want!

Which is why we shouldn't play by the rules. So long as civilian casualties are avoided, this war should not leave a single insurgent left alive, no prisioners or war.
