When we apply Rules to War and actually follow them. Then why bother. War is Hell. War is waged because all civil
means to settle a dispute have been exhausted. Collateral damage is on the heads of those they caused the War to be fought. And Media involvement and armchairs Generals make it a circus. War is for Soldiers. Let them fight unrestrained and with the motive and conviction to win. I don't advocate civilian brutality, but things have gone way off the deep end to cater to this point.
We have not won a war in 65 years.
Why? We have civilized
it and tried to make Wars "Police Actions". It does not work. When we stop conquering an enemy, stripping it of all weapons, and executing those that wont cease fire and submit,..... We haven't gained a thing. We will not solve the reason we involved ourselves in the first place. And all of our citizen soldiers we allowed to be killed, and the grief their families felt, was in vain. Every war since WWII has either been a failure, or a continued Police Action that never ends.
