as John McCain dropped a bomb on a vietnamese civilian power plant and as per Geneva Conventions , power plants and grids, railway stations, refineries, communication networks, sewerage treatment facilities, and water purification plants are indispensable to the survival of the civilian population.
and Article 54 of Geneva Conventions prohibits attacking them .

Bombing attacks in the first Gulf War and the Kosovo War systematically targeted power plants and grids, railway stations, refineries, communication networks, sewerage treatment facilities, and water purification plants, in spite of Article 54 of the Geneva Conventions which prohibits attacking any objectives “indispensable to the survival of the civilian population.”

from Mr.Moore:

John McCain is already using the Vietnam War in his political ads. In doing so, it makes not just what happened to him in Vietnam fair game for discussion, but also what he did to the Vietnamese … I would like to see one brave reporter during the election season ask this simple question of John McCain: "Is it morally right to drop bombs and missiles in a 'heavily populated' area where hundreds, if not thousands, of civilians will perish?"

as McCain violated the geneva conventions , it makes him a international war criminal , who must be tried for his war crimes in vietnam , in Hague
Also, when McCain was shot down , he was deliberately bombing Hanoi ,a heavily populated area


A very interesting and entertaining piece, which also asks a very pertinent question.

John McCain was shot down whilst bombing a heavily populated part of Hanoi (his own description) - so can anyone tell me what IS heroic about that?

I'll go further and ask about his treatment as a POW - if someone was shot down whilst bombing NY, how would citizens react?

There are sometimes legitimate military targets in heavily populated civilian areas, and it is perfectly legal to attack those targets. The article you referenced prohibits bombing of civilian utilities specifically, but if the utilities are being used by the military (trains for transport, electric plans for facilities) then they become legitimate targets, legally and morally.

And besides, he was following orders. Also, he hasn't at all played up his war experience in his campaign.
