Any man who uses women and children as human shields are cowards. < :-)

A human sheild is someone you hold in front of you, physically, like a shield. Hence the name. This expansion of the term is not helpful except as a propaganda ploy.

Not all of these civilians are unwilling participants. I can't even give a percentage, but I would wager that most are willing even if they are total fools for it. I would prefer to call them a "civilian fence". But then, I have no interest in propaganda bullocks.
