Can someone in the US military, not dressed in military uniform, captured by the enemy, be shot for espionage? Or is this not a war? I have many
problems with our wars. Don't any of you?
Now we declare war on what, a group? How can you declare war on a group? These are not wars, these are the assassination of people, we believe, might
attack us in the future.
War can only be declared against another country, not individual people.
I think valid questions like that, pertain to an era of warfare far removed from what we have in Iraq and Afgh.
You know, issues of shooting foreign troops in disguise as spies came before IEDs, Kidnapping, Beheading, Torture, Rendition and Abu Grab.
Essentially, the issue you've brought up is from conventional warfare, not this crap we have now.
Thanks mate, Kiwifoot.
