I think that any military force should not be surprised by its "enemy". It could be deadly.

It is a matter of life and death, a road either
to safety or to ruin. Hence it is a subject of inquiry
which can on no account be neglected. (The Art of War, Sun Tzu)

It looks like Rice won't be coming after all. That Qana thing really ripped it.
Yup, it's the Riveria of the ME.
Rice is going back home...Unfortunately.

Don't believe everything you think

Were they war criminals or something? We kept WII war criminals in jail years after but regular POW I think they were back in Japan, Germany and Italy almost right away. I guess the rules are different now because they don't have much of a representation that stands any test we put on them to look legitimate, am I wrong?

After the Israelis withdrew from Lebanon in 2000, they kept 300 POWs. But in 2002, Hezbollah kidnapped 2 Israeli soldiers and a spy. This forced a prisoner exchange that year. But Israel kept 5 POWs till this date.
