“But again, war is a no holds barred fight to exterminate the enemy”
Women and children, no-combatants, are not the enemy. No more than the thousands of Plains Indians slaughtered by Sherman and Sheridan and their thugs to make room for the railroad.
“Women and children, no-combatants, are not the enemy.”
Yes, they are. If you don’t want your women and children killed then don’t wage war. This isn’t a civil court action, this is war.
