when they didn't train guys to use hands and feet, knives, garrotes, sticks, to TAKE Nazi guns, and REALLY cause some crap in Germany, burning things, knocking holes in things, cutting commo wire, etc. Since they got shot anyway, for doing no more than escaping, they might as well have REALLY hurt the Nazi's.

You also left out the fact that the escapees were all officers, and, as officers, they had a code of conduct to abide by. In addition, the escapees had little idea that they would be executed, because Germany signed the Geneva Convention, and to a large extent, still followed its rules of conduct. It was a violation of the Geneva Convention to execute POWs like that.

And just like Bonny and Clyde, or Dillinger, the people that catch up with "Gunkid the bozo" (like 'Billy the Kid' but more on target), will give him no quarter and not even bother asking for him to give up.

Stupe like gunkid 'thinks' everybody is going to cower and run and hide. Around here, you kill a cop, you are dead. They won't care if you ask for your 'rights'. You will die 'resisting arrest'.

I see gunkid the REMF talkes big, but never walks the walk. In fact, he ran and was caught twice. Notice he even admits he gave them no trouble. That's the true gunkid. Like a litte dog, all bark and yap.

The men who participated in the Great Escape were most Army Airforce types who had no guerilla or spy training. All they wanted to do was get out of enemy territory and rejoin the fight. You dishonor their memory by suggesting such silly actions 60 years after the fact.

Tell us of some heroic action that you have personally done. It doesn't even have to do with guns or knives. Just something where you have helped somebody without thought of getting anything in return.

Technically, that's true, but that wasn't the reason they escaped. It was mostly to tie up enemy resources. Troops looking for them, weren't doing other things. According to The Geneva Convention, it's the duty of officers to try and escape, and to "harass and confound" the enemy.;) :D

GK,
Guerrilla warfare is not what the drafters of the convention had in mind, in fact, guerrillas are to summarily executed. So, technically speaking, the only rights the prisoners at Camp X-Ray have is the right to be executed.:cool:
