And they act like this is something new.  Killing and destroying an enemy's base of support is how you win a war.

Rebel fighters from the Farouq Brigade attacked a national hospital as part of a broader offensive on the city of Homs in April 2012, making no effort to protect civilians or patients in the hospital, which was later largely destroyed in a counterattack by government aircraft, the panel said.

Both sides have flouted the laws of war by positioning troops, snipers and even tanks in or around medical facilities, exposing them to danger, according to the report.

But I thought McCain had told us - cross his heart - that the rebels were the "good guys!"
