RULES OF WAR..OR JUST RUBBISH..DO THEY REALLY HAVE AN EFFECT..YOU HAVE TO BE THERE TO KNOW!

By Scott Camil Edited by SWT Read

The idea of having "rules of war" assumes that there is a proper and civilized way to conduct warfare. I find the idea ludicrous.
We teach our children to solve their problems without fighting, not by fighting according to rules. For the most part we practice what we preach.
So why is it that when nations have disputes, we must accept that they will murder and maim each other's citizens? The conduct of soldiers in war is made up of violent behavior that is criminal behavior outside of a war.
War is when we allow our loved ones to murder and destroy and then wonder that they are so traumatized.
Instead, if we're going to talk about rules of war, we have to start with the powerful people who chose to put those soldiers there.
The No.1 war crime is starting a war, because all other war crimes emanate from that first crime.I have not been to Afghanistan, but there are some evident similarities between the war there and the war in Vietnam.
Call it Vietghanistan. Both are wars of occupation.
The people of both countries looked different from us, resulting in racial profiling. They are all suspects, a word that carries a suggestion of guilt.
Neither of these wars has had an actual plan for winning so, why in gods name are we still there!
