No where in the Geneva Convention calls for restricting the use of .50 against exposed personnel. Where this you get this info from?

Wars have basically always had rules, but it wasn't until the 20th century that those rules were put in writing and expected to be followed...
I don't know why don't you tell us in your opinion what they were.

War have rules because they are games. Wars are profit and only profit.
between the battleing countries the elitary leaders are always friends.
Seriously it's easy as that!
