Abstract:

Not only do American service members have the duty to protect civilians on the battlefield, we also have the duty to minimize the hardship on the civilian population because of our actions on the battlefield. When the United States enters into a conflict in another nation, we are also entering into a contract to protect the innocent civilians of that nation. When we fail to protect those civilians on the battlefield that are injured or wounded, we have now assumed the responsibility of trying to save their lives. As the world power, we have an obligation to take the moral high ground in a time of war.
