There is a very basic principle that the military tribunals that Bush is proposing are violating, and that is the Golden Rule.  Do onto others as you would like them to do unto you.

The basic safeguard that the Geneva Convention mandates is that enemies which are tried for violations of the laws of war have the same procedures and procedural safeguards as a friendly soldier which is accused of the same crime, and that goes back to another principle which seems to be repeated forgotten which is that all are created equal.
