Geneva convention only applies amongst co-signing countries. For example, Geneva protocols do not apply to captured Al-Qaida terrorists. You can also be sure that the terrorists would never extend those protocols to hostages they capture.

Probably not to a Dolphin. Codders: what will your next attempt to hijack this thread be? Seal pups, then Geneva convention, what is next? mouse traps perhaps???
Many thanks to the folks on this forum that took the time to do something constructive about this problem.

I am NOT trying to hijack this thread - just reading some of these comments makes me think - "people in glass houses shouldn't throw stones"!!!

I think that this thread has now run its course.

As ever, ranting can be continued without interference from me on the wonderful forums at www.wtf.com

Thank you

John
