If this doesn't serve as proof of irregular warfare I don't know what does. When enemy troops wear your side's uniforms, they waive their right to humane treatment under the Geneva Convention. This is truly crazy stuff...

Beelzebub.

Like it never happened before by all side, look at WWII troops often wore captured soldiers Uniforms, etc.

Go back as long as you want and you will find it was common in warfare.

In this case, they can be treated as spies, right? Different set of rules for them.

This is anything but a common war. A conflict in which an outside force enters, defeats established power, sets up a government made up of locals, protects said government, and fights against a group of ununiformed insurgents that blow themselves up in crowds of civilians is a rarity known only to the modern world.

Hey, If I were a Talibani, and a bunch of US/NATO dudes invaded my beloved country or part of the world, I would be thinking of funny and interesting ways to kill of these infidels too, so come on, you have to at least gave the camel riders an A for effort and another A for their power of thinking out side of the box, using their imagination, right??

I wonder what Sarge would say if some foreign oppressor went to the US and tried to liberate them? Damn someone should give the US a taste of their own medicine. I guess their time is coming though. Can't prime the pump forever.
