Honorable soldiers, at that. I like to think we are transitioning into every more civilized behavior even though the facts do not always support that. Anyway, one way we have gotten more civilized is having civilized countries agree to rules of engagement. An enemy of this kind still is civilized and thier soldier have honor in acting in defense of their country just as our honorable soldier act in our defense.
