I just feel strongly that we need to treat POWs in the same manner that we want our captured soldiers treated.
Its one of the distinctions between us and the bad guys.
It is also an inducement to enemy combatants on the battle field to surrender instead of fight because they know they will be treated humanely, they know they will be fed, they know they will receive medical attention.
I'm not saying specifically that they should be given a soccer field. I'm just saying that we should treat prisoners as we would want our captured soldiers treated. Our country learned that in the Civil War at Andersonville.
