OK ... now I've calmed down a little. The US were the FIRST to develop 'weapons of mass destruction'. The US are the ONLY country to use 'weapons of mass destruction'. The US were the FIRST to take lives with 'weapons of mass destruction' even when it wasn't necessary to end the war, but one big open air laboratory. The US committed the two single largest terrorist acts in history.

No one, and I mean NO ONE should be treated in a way different to how you would expect to be treated. That is what *civilisation* is about, not having bigger and better guns. In fact some would say that having bigger and better guns is a sign of being less civilised, especially if you use them to do anything other than defend your person (and that's a contencious issue).

The Geneva convention was drawn up to protect people when captured. It was ratified by the US and so they should stick to it. Do you remember Dubya saying, "This is the first war of the 21st century" ?

You see, when it suited him he used the word WAR, now they are not prisoners of war. This means the US was *NOT* at war with the Taleban and so their (the US) actions were terrorism .. .plain and simple.
