    Come now. The Geneva Convention has been established to nothing more than a “quaint” document at best. No need to follow its provisions.

    Wasn’t that the Gevalia convention?

    The Hessians were hung over after a Christmas night of drinking!

    The Geneva convention is only valid when they are using the Swiss Water Decaf Coffee.

    Treaties such as the Geneva Conventions are no joke, and it is not just a “quaint document.” The Nuremburg trials were solely based on violations of the Kellogg-Briand pact, to which the US and Germany were both signatories. Japan did not sign the pact. Not all nations are signatories of the Geneva Conventions, either, and I doubt Id would have signed.

    It’s a piece a paper. Get over it

    I liked Xena and Gabrielle and Joxur and pretty much the whole shebang.

    “Rules in warfare, it don’t make sense, it’s not a game.”
    .
    There are practices which do not further the goals of either side but which avoid unnecessary bloodshed. If there is no way out but death or surrender and surrender is only prolonged torture, the obvious choice is die fighting, killing as many of the others as you can before you are killed even if if does not further the hopes of winning or harm their hopes of winning.
    If, on the other hand, decent treatment can be expected, it is possible to surrender, survive and not have to kill others for no purpose.
    Now, if you HAVE to kill, that is another matter, but anything which reduces that necessity is reasonable.
    Otherwise, you find yourself thinking, if I let these children live, they will grow up to fight me in ten years, if I let these women live they will bear more children and they will live to fight me in a generation. I had better kill them all just to be safe, even though they are not even combatants.

    He should have said “The Gevalia Convention”

    Hopefully for Rodney and his soldiers, it’s decaf.

    That’s what our government thinks of the Constitution, its just a piece of paper, not supposed to actually limit the federal governments power at all.

    …and your point is?

    War IS A GAME. It is a game of chess played by politicians and power hungry thugs that use real people on the ‘chessboard of life’. During WW 2 the Allies were fighting with everything we had to WIN. Unlike when the dude from the Pedernales area of Texas was running the show in Vietnam.
    .
    George Foreman would not go into the ring just holding his hands at his side and try to just bump his foe with his shoulder. He would hit him with all he had and try to hurt him.
    .
    We had to fight with our hands tied down. The bean and vote counters were running the show. ‘You can’t bomb the steel mills.’ ‘You can’t fight to win.’ All we were allowed to do was to harass the enemy and let him laugh at us. (When Bob Hope was there on his Christmas Tours, the V.C. were in their underground cities laughing at the GI’s above ground that were laughing and enjoying Bob, Jane Mansfield, Phyllis Diller and many others.) They had been fighting this war for over 30 years and had beaten everyone they had come up against. In comes the ‘paper tiger’ thinking he can clean this up in just a few months. if you are gonna get into the fight, you have to know how fight on their terms. We didn’t and it took a long time to learn that lesson.
    .
    I just finished reading a book entitled ROLLING THUNDER by Mark Berent. It is about the big push in the air war in Vietnam 1966. Mark was there and flew it. I was there as an aircraft technician and many of the questions raised in the book were felt also on the ground. It is an excellent read. If you remember the T.V. show MASH, there was more fact than fiction in that show. Likewise in this book. Just a different time and location, The same puppet masters were pulling the same strings and not letting the professionals do their jobs.
    .
    Who is to say that the same thing isn’t happening today.
