WikiProject Military history/Assessment/Tag & Assess 2008
I am reverting this series of edits. The reasons I am doing this is beacause:
- The changes to the lead imply that it was brought in because of unlawful combatants, yet it was brought in because the minor powers did not agree that francs-tireurs were unlawful combatants. The change in the lead presents the great powers POV as a statement of fact.
- I disagree with the moving of the cometary down to the end of the article, as what results is a first few sections that relies totally on primary and not secondary sources. The point about the comments by Rupert Ticehurs is his statements succinctly state the generally held opinions which it is easier to quote than risk copyright violations. Placing the statements at the end of the piece misses the point of why the statement are in the article in the first place.
- The new section section "Geneva Conventions" says "the Clause was repeated..." well no it was not the clause that was used in the Geneva Conventions the last sentence of the clause but dropped the phrase "among civilized peoples" (presumably as all nations are now considered civilized). I do not this that a section is needed for one sentence and there is no reason to mention the ICRC Commentary, as all it is saying is that under the Nuremberg principles the clause is now considered to be part of customary humanitarian law, this is better said in the mention of the U.S. Military Tribunal, United States v. Krupp.
- If the Ticehurs cometary is moved back up the page then it already covers the this point made in the new paragraph on the ICJ (as the citation makes clear without an in text attribution which is made by the quote.
Having made the revert I will include couple of points mentioned above which I think would improve the article. If anyone wishes to re-add anything I have deleted an not reinstalled pleases discuss it and reach a consensus here on the talk page. -- PBS (talk) 23:29, 2 August 2012 (UTC)
