Eh... who gets to Geneva these days anyhow? War is not about fighting fair. It is about winning.

No, the only credit I do give the U.S. military these days is in their efforts to not take civilian cassualties when bombing the shit out of something and we have become quite good at it!

There was a piece on NPR's This American Life, about a man who worked for the defense department, who was involved in strategicly placing rockets onto targets in such a way as to limit civilian casualties. One of these was a military instalation right next to a civilian hospital. The story details his efforts to plan the attack in such a way that the blast would not hurt the hospital. He eventually got to go to Iraq and see the fruits of his labor, only a few windows in the hospital got blown out.

No, here in America, war is not just about winning. I don't agree with much of what our millitary has done recently, but don't assert that we should not give a damn about such things. Again, you sure as hell don't speak for America!

Its from a thread in the politics section.

ANYWHO... back to the original post:

Cute. :wink: Although there are some that could be argued about if it was ONLY liberals who fought for it. I think I'll send this to my republican friend who's name is, ironically, Joe. He enjoys sending me all of his republican propoganda, I think its payback time. :wink:

I have no problem with making all efforts in limiting the number of civilian casualties, but when you deliberately put your military installations next to civilian ones, well, that was your own dumb planning, or an evil attempt to exploit the GC, in either case, you lose.
I speak for all of America except Kid (at the time of this publishing, complete exceptions list pending).

AFAIK, we are prohibited from attacking ANY hospital or MASH unit, just like how we can't murder an injured or sick enemy soldier.

Well, MP, then I was mistaken. It happens from time to time.

I was looking at this from my point of view, not from the view of the GC.

Thanks for letting me know what's what in our military. :)

OR: Joe Republican gets in his car, which is equipped with life-saving seat belts, which some commie pinko America-hating liberal saw fit to make compulsory for cars.

Sumthin' like that.
