Subject: RE: Review: Unique Civil War Biography
... as for never again will wars be attended by dignity top both sides? Shame on us, if it is not! The Iraqi soldiers who surrendered in huge numbers in the early 90's were certainly treated with respect, dignity and humanity. It would becriminla of us NOT to do the same thing again, if in fact it comes to a war and there are similar incidents of surrender.
I know we cannot expect the same treatment from their forces, but would hope we will have very few of our soldiers fall into their hands.
