Jacqueau, I don't give a damn how you "feel" about any issue. When it is spelled out in "Law" it is the facts that are important.
I suggest you read the Hague Accords. You have heard about the Hague Accords and Geneva Conventions, have you not?

Ceasefire
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"Truce" redirects here. For other uses, see Truce (disambiguation).
For other uses, see Ceasefire (disambiguation).

A ceasefire (or truce) is a temporary stoppage of a war in which each side agrees with the other to suspend aggressive actions. Ceasefires may be declared as part of a formal treaty, but they have also been called as part of an informal understanding between opposing forces. An armistice is a formal agreement to end fighting.

Amount the odd things in the Geneva Conventions is the treatment of prisoners. The weight of the prisoner must be maintained.
You have two prisoner who are captured. Both are 5'9" (175 cm) tall and the first is captured early in a battle and weighs 220 lbs (100 kg) while the other is captured after spending three months in a life raft and weighs only 110 lbs (50 kg)!
According to the Geneva Accords you can not feed the 110 lbs POW any more than to maintain his weight while the 220 pounder must be feed to maintain his over weight condition.
Doesn't sound right but it is in the International rules of war.

To be a lawful combatant you must be in an identifiable military uniform with a rank and must represent a Nation. People like frogmen are considered to be wearing a military uniform. All LAWFUL combatants are protected IAW the Geneva Accords.
If you are not a LAWFUL combatant, you are NOT protected by the GA. Al Qaeda and Taliban do not wear military uniforms and do not represent any nation. Ergo, they are NOT protected by the GA.
They are subject to a summary military tribunal and ... an execution!!!
We should try all GITMO detainees IAW the Geneva Accords and execute them. Then we can close GOTMO.
Israel should do the same to their capurted ILLEGAL combatants.

North Carolina Governor Signs New Pro-Life Legislation Into Law
Katie Pavlich | Jul 30, 2013

North Carolina Pat McCrory signed pro-life legislation into law late yesterday requiring abortion clinics to comply with basic medical standards used in outpatient surgical clinics. The legislation also allows medical insurance providers to opt out of abortion coverage in their plans. Surgical abortion in North Carolina is legal from five weeks to 20 weeks of pregnancy.

"These higher standards will result in safer conditions for North Carolina women," McCrory said. "This law does not further limit access and those who contend it does are more interested in politics than the health and safety of our citizens."

U.S. Army won't bar contractors linked to Afghan insurgents -watchdog By Susan Cornwell
WASHINGTON (Reuters)- The U.S. Army has refused to bar 43 individuals or companies from getting U.S. contracts in Afghanistan despite information that they support the Taliban or other enemies of U.S. forces, a government watchdog said on Tuesday.
John Sopko, the Special Inspector General for Afghan Reconstruction (SIGAR), said he was concerned by the Army's refusal to follow his office's recommendations to prevent alleged supporters of the Taliban, the Haqqani network and al Qaeda from getting or keeping U.S. government contracts.
"I am deeply troubled that the U.S. military can pursue, attack and even kill terrorists and their supporters, but that some in the U.S. government believe we cannot prevent these same people from receiving a government contract," Sopko wrote in an introduction to his office's quarterly report on the U.S. reconstruction effort in Afghanistan.
The Haqqani Network is an Islamist insurgent group that operates on both sides of the Afghanistan-Pakistan border.
The report said SIGAR referred 43 contractors' cases - most of them Afghans - to the U.S. Army for suspension or debarment, but all were rejected, "despite detailed supporting information demonstrating that these individuals and entities are providing material support to the insurgency in Afghanistan."
"In other words, they may be enemies of the United States, but that is not enough to keep them from getting government contracts," the quarterly report said.
A U.S. Army spokesman asked to comment on the report said the evidence submitted by SIGAR was based in part on anonymous sources and Commerce Department findings about the companies, and was insufficient to bar the contractors.
"The Army Procurement Fraud Branch did receive and review the 43 recommendations late last year, but the report did not include enough supporting evidence to initiate suspension and debarment under Federal Acquisition Regulations," said Matthew Bourke, an Army spokesman.
None of the contractors recommended for suspension or debarment were identified in the SIGAR report, nor did it provide details of their contractor work. SIGAR officials said that in excess of $150 million was involved, and that more than 80 percent of the contractors were Afghan entities; the rest were from the region.

Do you remember the allied occupation of Germany and how Patton was criticized and dismissed for employing Nazi sympathisers in the rebuilding of essential infrastructures? Why was Patton, who turned out to be right, doing this? Because THERE WAS NO ONE ELSE, simple as that. All the good engineers and experts or most of them had collaborated. It also placed on the Allied side elements that many otherwise have been hostile. Same for Afghanistan. You eliminate Al Qaeda and Taliban sympathisers, you have no work force as the majority of the population is anti-Western and pro-Taliban/Al Qaeda, don't you even know that? Employing these pro-Taliban Al Qaeda elements won't make them love us, for sure, but it might just temper their zeal to destroy.

Pentagon Likely to Cut Furlough Days
Jul 30, 2013
Associated Press| by Lolita C. Baldor
WASHINGTON - Defense department civilians will likely face up to five fewer unpaid furlough days than originally planned, as Pentagon leaders scrimp to find up to $900 million in savings in the final months of the budget year that ends Sept. 30, officials told The Associated Press.
Officials said no final decisions have been made, but they believe civilian workers will be forced to take six to eight unpaid days off rather than the 11 days that had been scheduled. The move comes as workers begin their fourth week of furloughs - a decision that riled department employees and prompted many to complain directly to Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel as he visited military bases earlier this month.

Just cancel superfluous F-35 and Osprey programmes, Rogue, ground useless B1s and B2s, mothball 2 more carriers and you'll have enough to eliminate those unpaid days and much more.

Yep, the Country Club RINOs and the Progressives have joined ranks. The RINOs want them of cheep labor while the Progressives want to to broaden their voter base.
And who will suffer? The working poor who are largely black and who compete with these low education workers for menial labor.
The Progressives really don't care about blacks except they want their votes and to get their votes they must continually play the race card.
True Conservatives want to lift up all Americans. Why do you think professional sports owners, who are usually Conservatives, seek the best athletes regardless of skin color!!!

Oh, it was the British who rebuilt VW after the war.

Who helped Germany to rebuild VW just after wars end?
Best Answer - Chosen by Asker

1945: British Army, Major Ivan Hirst, unclear future
The company owes its post-war existence largely to one man, British Army officer Major Ivan Hirst, REME. In April 1945, KdF-Stadt, and its heavily bombed factory were captured by the Americans, and subsequently handed over to the British, within whose occupation zone the town and factory fell. The factories were placed under the control of Oldham-born Hirst.
Short of light transport, in September 1945 the British Army was persuaded to place a vital order for 20,000. The first few hundred cars went to personnel from the occupying forces, and to the German Post Office.
Some British Service personnel were allowed to take their VW Beetles back to the United Kingdom when they were demobilised, and one of the very first Beetles brought back in that way (UK registration number JLT 420) is still owned by Peter Colborne-Baber, the son of the original proprietor of the UK's first official Volkswagen Importer, Colborne Garages of Ripley, Surrey.

By 1946 the factory was producing 1,000 cars a month, a remarkable feat considering it was still in disrepair. Owing to roof and window damage, rain stopped production and new vehicles were bartered for steel required for more production.
The car and its town changed their Second World War-era names to "Volkswagen" and "Wolfsburg" respectively, and production was increasing. It was still unclear what was to become of the factory. It was offered to representatives from the British, American and French motor industries. Famously, all rejected it. After an inspection of the plant, Sir William Rootes, head of the British Rootes Group, told Hirst the project would fail within two years, and that the car "is quite unattractive to the average motorcar buyer, is too ugly and too noisy … If you think you're going to build cars in this place, you're a bloody fool, young man".[citation needed] In an ironic twist of fate, Volkswagen would manufacture a locally built version of Rootes's Hillman Avenger in Argentina in the 1980s, long after Rootes had gone bankrupt at the hands of Chrysler in 1978—the Beetle outliving the Avenger by over 30 years.
Ford representatives were equally critical: the car was "not worth a damn," according to Henry Ford II, the son of Edsel Ford, although he did reportedly look at the possibility of taking over the VW factory, but dismissed the idea as soon as he looked up Wolfsburg on the map and found it to be too close for comfort to the East German border

So it was the British Army who helped VW to take off.
I wonder if they ever said thank you to us
