I actually take the view that there should be no rules in war. To be honest, I do not even understand why we ever thought we should put rules on war. It is to be played to win. It is not about who can be nicest or kindest.
I think a leaders job is to define the enemy clearly and then unleash everything in his aresenal to defeat that enemy as quickly as possible with the least loss of life on his side of the war.. no if, ands, or butts.
Trying to put rules on war is just the fantasy of people who do not want to face the ugliness of war. It is a weakness IMO.

Dont forget why you are there and who sent you.
It wasnt the "bleeding hearts".
It was the conservative war mongers bent on securing oil contracts.
You said bleeding! OMG!
This was not an empty land, America. It was inhabited with millions of Indians. By 1890, there were only 250,000 Indians left!! As an American, what do you think happened to all those Indians? Never in the whole history of the world was there ever a bigger genocide or one more vicious. But what is most astounding about this, is the fact that Americans know nothing about this. The late, great Tony Black Feather used to always tell me, "Americans enjoy killing. They kill for fun. They even kill each other."
This is a first hand account as given to Dahr Jamail from a man who was actually in the Mosque when the US soldiers opened fire:.......
Americans were always God fearing Christian capitalists. They let nothing stand in the way of making a profit. How did they get by with it? Just don’t report it, don’t talk about it, and if you do, just lie about it. That’s the American way.
Respect for life and that of truly magnificent wild game is what hunting is all about. Not the killing. Even trophy hunters do not enjoy the killing part. Man hunts, has hunted for ages, in order to hunt game must be killed.
As long as we keep treating animals as insentient objects that were put on this planet to serve our desires, we will continue to oppress them, continue to hurt them, and continue to torture them. This causes us to be plagued by the guilt that lies like a blanket of anguish over the collective conscience of humanity. All over the world, animals are imprisoned, enslaved, tortured and killed violently, and all over the world, people go on as if this is just fine with them. Everyone is complicit in this crime, except for those who reject the products of the animal holocaust, embrace the vegan ideal, and choose a life where harming others is not an option.
The diligent hunter takes his game for food (roasting) and considers it a precious possession, as he has food for his family's table. Today men are slaughtering animals for wicked reasons. Many elephants and rhinos are killed for their tusks and horns and their bodies are left to rot. Other animals are slain for just the sport of it and their heads and bodies are stuffed to hang on a wall for a trophy of man's prowess, while the meat was discarded. Bulls are slain for men just to watch the sport of bull fighting. Cock fighting is another sport where the cocks are put together to see which one will kill the other. Gambling is usually associated with this sport. We could name other atrocities of killing animals which take place with evil motives.
