    If a soldier is captured by the enemy, what is the only information he is supposed to give out?

    Name, rank and serial number. It has always been that way.

      Thank you. I am sure they get more information out of them.

      I am just answering your question. That is all they are SUPPOSED to give out. I am sure there are "some" that when tortured may give more.

      I remember when I was in during Desert Storm and some of the POWs gave out more info but they were abused and tortured before giving the information.

      That is so sad. I hope they are better now.

    Per the Geneva convention, he is supposed to give name, rank, serial number.

    I'll also add that in the Geneva Convention, soldiers only get medical care, freedom from torture, the right to write home when they wear a uniform and have a chain of command. Guerrilla soldiers, hiding among civilians, committing atrocities or espionage without a uniform are all capital offenses per the Geneva Convention.

    Thus we executed Germans who took off their uniforms and tried to destroy military assets during World War 2 and have the right to execute every Islamic terrorist for targeting civilians and not wearing a uniform.

      Interesting, I don't think Geneva or UN follow their laws or principles very often.

      Do you actually think the Geneva Convention means anything to The Taliban or ISIS? Or actually any of them over there?

      No. I do not think it means anything to them. But, what sway does the Geneva or UN have on them? Nothing.
