Obvious Ethical Lesson Number One - Don't Shoot Infants

Following on from two sensational stories about the US Military slaughtering several innocent Iraqi civilians, the US have announced that all troops will be receiving ethical lessons. Will lesson one be “don't shoot babies or infants”? Perhaps lesson two should be, “don't shoot un-born babies”? Or how about the third, “If you are going to shoot people hell-bent on illegal acts, saying 'God told me to do it' then at least be consistent”.
