Chapter Summary

This chapter contains a number of dilemmas. Some of the dilemmas are drawn from the Joint Services Conference on Professional Ethics (JSCOPE), an American organisation of officers and academics that organizes conferences on moral issues in the military field. The dilemmas presented in the chapter are based on hypothetical situations, and that any resemblance to actual situations or people is purely coincidental. In April 2003, following deployment by a coalition made up of primarily American and British armed forces, the regime of Saddam Hussein in Iraq was overthrown. On 22 May of that year, the Security Council adopted Resolution 1483, which established the Stabilisation Force in Iraq (SFIR). During a patrol in the area of operations, Dutch Marines caught a group of Iraqi arms smugglers red-handed. The group is probably made up of members of the former Iraqi army who did not surrender to the units of the American-British coalition.
