Army Basic Training

How to fire an M-16? Check.

How to throw a grenade? Check.

How to kill your enemy with your hands? Check.

How to avoid being killed while reading a prisoner his Miranda rights to avoid causing a mistrial when he is sent back to the US for trial, all the while ducking incoming fire and watching for IED's?

That's where this new ruling from the Supreme Court will have us.

Ironically, the unintended consequence is that this ruling will serve as a strong deterrent to US troops capturing live prisoners.
