    I see no indication in the language of that article which would suggest non-uniformed combatants are even acknowledged, let alone protected.

    Non-uniformed combatants aren't protected by the GC. They're considered to be nothing more than common criminals and can be shot on sight.

    Actually, common criminals cannot be shot on sight.
    Wow. Am I awesome or what?

    Uh, yes they can. That's the reason that the Geneva Convention took special care to say that mercenaries can be regarded as common criminals, in a combat theater. In military operations, looters and other common criminals can be shot on sight. Therein lies the difference between lawful combatants who rate the protections described by the GC and non-uniformed, or illegal combatants who do not. Lawful combatants cannot be summarily executed, common criminals, illegal combatants, spies and mercenaries can.

    Tell us! Are you concerned when anyone breaks the law or only when the "bad guys" break the law?

    Also please post threads started by yourself that expressed outrage or concern for lawbreaking under the Bush Administration?

    I'll glady send you $10 per link for your time!

    It's worth it to me to show this forum that we still have a true law and order Conservatives who stand for the Rule of Law in our midst rather than some typical right wing Authoritarian who only cares about laws when the other side is doing the law breaking.

    Thanks in advance!
    who the **** are you, and what makes you think you got everybody here figured out already?

    There are some real questions here, and I stick with my consistent point in any case of possible wrongdoing, since there is evidence of possible wrongdoing, investigate and if there is evidence of criminal wrongdoing, prosecute. Right now, all we have is vague accusations, which is not enough to convict on, so let's back off the over the top rhetoric.
    I'm not just talking about criminal wrongdoing - this appears to be unethical at the least.

    I know I would not have done it, but if it is not illegal, there really isn't anything we can do about it.
