re: prof danglais.You mean the many times where someone in Pakistan or Afghanistan have shot at NATO troops, then it’s claimed later that they are “innocent civilians” by Karzai or media? You might want to read up on the Third 1949 Geneva Convention, sections 4 and 5. A distinctive insignia visible at a distance is a minimum. The treaties don’t protect those who hide in civilian clothing and that is deliberate in order to protect noncombatants.
