WRAM - We dedicate our hearts,minds and bodies to protecting our great Republic!
Sorry if this is a topic already covered but if not I wish to post the question to the militia leaders.
As a militia do we follow the Geneva conventions (Geneva Conventions Wiki?
Specifically if a unknown or a enemy comes under a white flag and wants to parlay do we agree or shoot on site?
Since we are trying to bring people to our side, and offenders (rebels) to return to the Constitution, I would think that any opportunity to offer that the bad guys could redeem themselves should be taken.
Instead of the Geneva Convention, I would suggest (as I did in the Plan http://www.outpost-of-freedom.com/blog/?p=365, outlined in the full version) that we revise the Lieber Code, established in the 19th century, to apply to our circumstances (http://outpost-of-freedom.com/library/Lieber%20Code%20for%20the%20P...). We are not nations at war, rather restoring the Constitution. Unlike Vietnam and other recent wars, hearts and minds can make a difference with people of the same nation.
If they are foreign troops on our soil, unconditional surrender is the only option. I don't, however, as everybody else anticpates, expect that to happen, if we use the Plan as a guideline to restore the Constitutional government.
However, there is always the possibility that trioops may come in across our southern border. They should either surrender, unconditionally, which might require a very short meeting under a flag of truce, no negotiations, or, be chased back across the border.
Though I didn't agree with what we did on the road the Basrah, I would condone such a plan in the circumstance described -- highway of death.
All I can say it would be suicidal for you to be wearing that blue helmet...
Use caution and it is according to the surcumstance. And Be ready to defend.
