The Geneva Conventions do not recognize any lawful status for combatants in conflicts not involving two or more nation states. A state in such a conflict is legally bound only to observe Common Article 3 of the Geneva Conventions and may ignore all of the other Articles.

Surprise. Unless we go to war with Mexico, there is no treaty standing in our way. They still have no rights. They are covered under article 3. However, they are still criminals in the process of committing a crime.

Fuck the EU and the UN for forcing countries like the US into adopting their idiotic policies. They end up being horribly one sided and always seem to benefit nigger nations

This one isn't an EU or UN thing. It's a voluntary treaty thing. Fuck the UN and EU, their laws and rulings don't mean shit. But we are bound to treaties that we explicitly and voluntarily commit to.
