The 'War To End All Wars' was worse than a worthless war: in addition to costing so many lives that an entire generation of Europeans was gutted (along with the Armenian Genocide), all it accomplished was to spawn WWII and its even greater destruction.

To the OP's subject, summarily executing prisoners of war who have fought within the limits of orders restricting intentional destruction to armed combatants is unnecessary and illegitimate. The legitimate purpose of war is victory. When victory requires the destruction of those resisting that victory, then the destruction is legitimate within the scope of war. By definition, prisoners have ceased resistance. They need not be catered to, and can be expected to endure the same privations and harsh conditions as their captors, but executing or torturing them degrades those who do it. Doing so changes a war from a tragedy men fight to end into an atrocity men commit without cause.

That shocked me! So I checked it out, and it's true.

Automobiles kill more people than firearms, even when suicides employing a firearm and officer involved justified homicides are included in the firearms death toll.

Only people mostly and negligently abusing them EVER kill any people.
Mechanical failures being minimal enough to be irrelevant to the issue.
Human error and mental illness is what predominates in these cases.
