#3 The whole concept of 'law of warfare' is both sides respecting it and practicing it. Anything else is some jerks' fantasy of coulda, woulda, shoulda.

#4 Some people out there seem to think that warfare is some antiseptic little game played with rules like Monopoly or Yahtzee.

It is not. Reality bites and war is an ugly mes.

The media should be kept in tents miles to the rear of the action and only allowed to attend briefings. I don't think any of them have either the stomach or the reality to report a conflict accurately.

Simply put, liberal values placed on a conflict between two groups neither of whom cares what the world thinks.
