..Okay, a few things to add after thinking it over. The Geneva Convention does outline rules for a war; among them, no taking of hostages, an occupying force must act as caretaker of the occupied country's assets (and not sell them off to war profiteers), and no interrogating detainees beyond getting their name, rank, and station. Of course, the U.S. has ripped the Geneva Convention to shreds during the war in Iraq, and must be held accountable; but my last post made it sound like EVERY war breaks these rules, which they don't.
