i forgot that slaughtering civilians is wrong

This WaPo article tells us that as a result of the Haditha investigation, where 24 civilians including women and children were allegedly slaughtered by U.S. forces, troops will now be required to undergo "core values" training.
Army Gen. George W. Casey, the top U.S. commander in Iraq, today ordered that all U.S. and allied troops in Iraq undergo new "core values" training in how to operate professionally and humanely. Not only will leaders discuss how to treat civilians under the rules of engagement, but small units also will be ordered to go through training scenarios to gauge their understanding of those rules.
I can picture the training now:

"Okay soldiers, listen up! Listen up! You know how we used to be OK with slaughtering women and children? Well, that's out now. From now on, NO civilian slaughter, and I don't wanna catch any of you ladies bitching about it either. Got that soldiers?"

"Sir Yes Sir!"
