Members of the USA Military forces are thoroughly indoctrinated into the Law of War; a branch of international law which is the legal boundary of our military Rules of Engagement. Everyone, from the lowliest private to the loftiest general is repeatedly indoctrinated into this so that they fully understand it; in Initial Entry Training, through the commissioning sources, annually at home units, and as a required part of Mobilization training. A service member will receive training in the Law of War a MINIMUM of three times throughout a military contract. Most people will receive this training DOZENS of times throughout their military careers. The Law of War is based on the Geneva Convention Treaty, and is not a function of American Federal law.
With all of that having been said, it bears mentioning that every American soldier, whether enlisted or commissioned, must swear an oath to the Constitution of the United States in order to become inducted into military service; not the president, and not the government, and certainly not any international order, but to the Constitution of the United States.
How is it that US service members receive no, I say again, NO training on the US Constitution WHATSOEVER? Is it not ass backward that American soldiers are taught to serve an international treaty, while they are kept entirely in the dark about American law? Even US Military officers receive little to no training on the document that they have sworn to uphold, and are honor bound and responsible to protect. It is entirely possible to command a company of American soldiers without ever having read the US Constitution, yet you can believe that no one will reach that position without having become intimately familiar with the Geneva Convention, which is closely connected to the UN list of «Human Rights,» which, in reality, is a practical socialist manifesto, which outlines what governments are to provide for their people, and not what governments are limited from doing to an individual’s property and business.
The UN bill of «Human Rights» is antithetical to the US Constitution. Our service men are taught to uphold the former whilst ignoring the latter. This is outrageous.
