There are rules of engagement that every civilized nation preserves. And shooting wounded men defending their mosque isn´t tolerated by any means. And it´s a pure excuse to say it´s about manpower..you have 30 soldiers to 1 iraqi men in fallujah...

And if it had been a marine in captivity and they shot him, we would be the ones to complain and say how they are not following the Geneva Convention. Either way this is just another wasted life and another way for one or more sides to get compassion. We will of course use one side that favors us in each situation and so will the other side.

You have EVERY right under the rules of war to shoot a wounded man if there is a CHANCE he is still engaged in combat. Wounding someone does not mean “tag your out of the game now..stop shooting”. It means the guy is not able to fight as effectively now as before.
