Atrocities in War: Dirty Hands and Noncombatants

Volume 69, No. 4 (Winter 2002): 963-979

ABSTRACT: The article focuses on the issue of atrocities by U.S. military personnel in the war against terrorism with reference to the Dirty Hands principle. As a veteran of the Vietnam War, the author learned to function efficiently and professionally as a soldier. Though at that time it did not bother him that prisoners were tortured, looking back at it now, he believes that his reaction was a result of the training he has had. Thus, he emphasizes that military training should center on the laws of war which include the two principles: one, human suffering must be minimized, and two, each person merits respect. These, he concludes, oppose atrocities, and maintains honor without immoral or illegal acts.
