Acts of terror are banned by the laws of war.
So are medical persons and chaplains.
You post that before your morning coffee, or what?
I probably should have reversed the order of the lines. In return
for their privileged status medical persons and chaplains lose
the right to take part in combat.
Do those people have the basic right of self defence against plain
murder [as opposed to legit military killing] ? I understand that
during the Viet Nam war some concientous objectors, who were medics,
would carry a rifle to blend in. In a average ambush, medics were a
priority target, right after the radioman, and ahead of the machine
gunners and the officers.
