Unconventional Warfare by Randal M. Bundy - 2015
Legitimate Enemy Targets
Let's consider for a little while who would be considered ligitimate
targets during such a war as I have mentioned here.
The enemy soldier
Rule of Action is survival at any means possible and that means quite
simply that contact with the enemy should be avoided unless you
know for certain that you and your forces are in a possition of
surperior number and strength as to defeat the enemy. This holds
true rather contact with the enemy is your laying an ambush for him or
going head long into a driect conventional battel against him.
The Second rule of Action when it is determined that you do have a
winning hand is the enemy must be eliminated unless taking
them captive would render you with vital intelligence information.
opportunity works both ways so there are no exceptions for female
enemies. Now the enemy does not have to be clothed in
a unifrorm with unit patches and all the rest of identifying marks.
Generally speaking if they are in a theator of war, baring firarms or
not then their intentions are to kill you and your people. This
also holds true for collaberators as well.
Now there are things to consider that are very sensitive targets such as the following:
Religious Insititutions and Religious Leaders.
speaking Churches are sacred by civilized societies and
people just as Religious Leaders are too. However those Religious
Leaders also have a responsibility and obligation to maintain a
distance from actually serving as support mechanisms for the military
they may feel allied toward and they must also prevent their churches
from being utalized by the military itself in order to maintain
themselves and their churces from becoming targets. I refer here
to Muslim Mosques which have regularly been utalized as shelters for
snipers and warehousing of arms and ammunition for the attacks upon
both enemy civilians as well as enemy soldiers. They have also
regularly been where the enemy with try to flee as a last resort or as
a means of protection through sancturary after they have slaughtered
your unarmed civilian population.
a priest willingly uses his church to store arms and ammunition and
shelter for snipers, then he can hardly expect to be afforded the
religious exemptions from being a target himself. If such an
attack was approved
then that approval would most certainly have to come from the highest
levels of the
particular military in that sector. In other words I would
suggest that it could not be an attack
initiated at low level units, unless in the case of the
utalized by snipers, in which case there is no time to consult with
higher authority. In that case the sniper must be eliminated at
all cost, including damage to the Religious building. Hopefully
non combattants will have already evacuated to a safer location.
However if evacuation is conducted while you and your troops are
have establishing a peremitor around the building, then all caution
must be take against any possible infiltration of enemy soldiers hiding
amongst the civilian population.
It is reasonable to presume the ememy will attempt this without
hesitation since that same enemy utalized a religious building for
cover when firing against you.
in regards to the normally excepted priests. Consider that
is actually that priest is considered a part of the civil
leadership of this race war which I refered to. Suppose the have
full knowledge of autrocities being committed and they have provided
material support for such atrocities. It is pretty conclusive that he
has now moved from his role of providing spiritual and
religious guiidence of soldiers in need, to an actually leader of
opposition forces? Any such assasination of him or destruction of
church would have to be carefully considered by higher military and
civil authorities, but personally I do under those circumstance agree
that his assasination would be justified provided it was determined
that he was a willing contributing factor of material support for those
would be committing atrocities toward your people. Destruction
of his church would also be warranted provided that it was clear that
that facility would continue to be used in such a way to desquize it's
it's true purpose as a warehouse of arms and ammunition for your enemy.
it is important to understand that the random targetting of Churhces
and religious leaders as well as those attending Church services are
NOT legitimate Tagets in themselves. Depending upon the war
itself this may very well change since it is considered by most that in
the case of Islam itself, by nature and proven history the religion
itself is part of the overall driving force that is behind the actions
of attrocities committed against civilian populations. Moving
into that welm of the War would be something determined at some point
by higher command.
Collaberators and Traitors
WW2, the British did believe they might be able to repeel a
German invasion of the Island and they made extensive plans
for Guerrilla Warfare against the Invading and Occupying Germans
Included in those plans were sabatage, assasinations as well the
killing of colaberators under certain curcumstanes. The fate
of calaberators, rather Life
and death would preferably and idealy be decided by the Military
and executions would be
carried out most likely by the Guerrilla Forces or the Resistance
itself. However in many circumstances such as the discovery of
one of your own citizens fighting along side the enemy that comitts
atrocities against your people, well that person's fate will most
likely be decided by the localResistance or Guerrillas themselves in a very short period of time.
Even during a Race War, there will be callaberators and traitors
depending upon your enemies actions. There may be a few people who for
some reason believe they themselves will be rewarded for the betrayal
of their people. Of course if your enemy is successful in their
race war, these people will most likely be exterminate by the very same
people they served.
Enemy Command and Control
Most certainly these would be considered legitimate and viable targets in any war and especially during a race war.
Absolutely they are legitimate targets but also anyone and everyone who
was in any way a part of the War Support. Their
actions are directly supportive of your enemy who is trying to
exterminate you and your family.
