Greetings,

I stumbled across this story and thought it was interesting as I had not heard it before in mainstream media. It sort of shows how ethnocentric the Geneva war convention is amongst other things. http://www.washingtonpost.com/ac2/wp-dyn/A12431-2005Feb9?language=printer

Cheers Fg7

I'd be surprised if any country in the world followed the Geneva convention to the letter.... it's a known fact that human nature simply degenerates once people have power over prisoners (eg. Zimbardo prison simulation experiment in the 70's).
