The Rules of War: What do we really know?Submitted by bravoseis on Thu, 04/14/2011 - 14:56
The American Red Cross' Isabelle Daoust was online Thursday April 14, at noon ET, to talk about a recently released survey that found many young Americans are unaware of the rules of war. In a time where there is great conflict abroad, many also believe that more strides should be taken to educate young people before they can vote or enlist in the military, the survey notes.
Have a question about the survey? Wondering how we can better educate America's youth? Ask now and join the discussion.
Isabelle Daoust :
Hi, my name is Isabelle Daoust. Today we will be talking about the importance of international humanitarian law or I.H.L. for short. The American Red Cross just release some survey results that show that few young Americans know about these rules. Given the number of conflicts today, it's important that we know more about the world around us. Thank you and I look forward to your questions!
