Rules of WarSubmitted by jruss133 on Tue, 02/12/2013 - 09:36
Do you think America's tactics in modern warfare have violated the principle or the letter of this law? Any relevant information you can add would be appreciated.
Deut 20:19 When thou shalt besiege a city a long time, in making war against it to take it, thou shalt not destroy the trees thereof by forcing an axe against them: for thou mayest eat of them, and thou shalt not cut them down (for the tree of the field is man's life) to employ them in the siege:
20 Only the trees which thou knowest that they be not trees for meat, thou shalt destroy and cut them down; and thou shalt build bulwarks against the city that maketh war with thee, until it be subdued.
