Soldiers and the Geneva Convention


I just have to marvel at those who claim that Islamic terrorists
who have no uniform, no particular country and absolutely no honor deserve the protections of the Geneva Convention, which were meant to protect prisoners who were captured on a field of battle in a declared war between two or more nations. In other words, it was intended to protect a soldier.

Soldiers do not blow up plane loads and bus loads of innocent people.

Soldiers do not hide among the civilian population like a bunch of rats, nor
do they gleefully hack the heads off of prisoners and video tape it for all
the world to see.

Soldiers do not intentionally send gullible young men into a crowd of women
and children with explosives strapped to their bodies with promises of a
paradise full of erotic pleasures.


Soldiers do not run schools for the sole purpose of teaching
Innocent children to hate everybody who does not believe the same way they do, children who will later take up arms and become just as big a fanatic as the ones who taught them.

Soldiers fight to achieve peace, not genocide, to save the lives of the
innocent, not to destroy them.

Soldiers proudly wear the uniform and insignia of the country they are
fighting for and the trappings of the service they belong to.

Soldiers don't use women and children as human shields.

Terrorists defy every sentence of the Geneva Convention, so in the name of
good sense, can somebody tell me why they deserve to be treated under its
protections when they are captured?


They fight hiding behind skirts and cradles; they wear no uniforms and
indiscriminately kill anybody who stands in their way, even people of their
own race and faith. They torture and kill the prisoners who are unfortunate enough to fall into their grasp.

They are bent on destroying every Christian and Jew on earth and some people actually believe that they are entitled to a lawyer, a plush prison and all the rights of the people they are so determined to destroy.

Well I for one don't think they should be entitled to anything except humane treatment and a military tribunal. In fact I think it's high time to abandon any semblance of traditional wartime mores and fight this war on the enemy's terms.

And no I am not talking about the intentional killing of innocent civilians
or instituting suicide bombing. I'm talking about pursuing them in every way
possible. I'm talking about wire tapping, profiling, shooting first and
asking questions later.


Sound radical to you? Well it is. When you're fighting radicals you have to
be radical.

Pray for our troops

What do you think?

God Bless America

Typicial vacuous response from the left. If you have nothing of substance to offer just try to discredit the source.

So what if he's a country singer? What do you do for a living that's so important and gives your opinions more credibility than his?

Umm, your post was the equivalent of pandering rantings of a B-grade country "star". Was I supposed to offer an academic treatise on his crisply executed prose, replete with obligatory appeals to lowbrow patriotism? My bad, I didn't get that memo...must've been a Faux News Alert.

Didn't expect an "academic treatise" from you but a grunt, a moan and a fart hardly qualifies as any kind of response.

Try again...

It is okay if the misunderstood freedom fighters behead the evil Zionist and Infidels, that is the nature of their culture.

It is beyond evil to take pictures of young woment who point and giggle at the genitalia of Allah's freedom fighters or to let dogs bark at them.

I hope this lesson helps you understand you narrow view more clearly.

Death to the Great Satan,

You could be right about that.
One thing's for sure, it will never play well for the elitist left and for those that that have never served in the military sit on the side lines and watch these animals play their murderous hide and seek games. It will never play well for those that want to protect the low lives that haven't enough courage to walk in front of a TV camera with their faces uncovered. But then of course you are entitled to your opinion...

To the Bushies, everyone is a terrorist. The people of Iraq have rights under the Geneva Convention to fight a foreign occupier who has attacked them without provocation. The resistance fighters definitely qualify as combatants under the Geneva Convention. Of course, the most disturbing thing here is that Mr. Daniels, a noted acadamecian and low end GOP Bar-B-Que performer, is really advocating torture and murder. God Bless America, he says, as he pours acid down someone's throat.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
