The Vienna Accords

This document will rule out not only the rules of war but it will also define crimes against humanity.

Article 1: Rules of War
Section 1: Uniform Standardization of Nations

Every nation's soldiers, cars, planes, and any other piece of equipment must be marked with their flag or coat of arms of their nation. If a nationís equipment or soldiers are found not to be marked, that nation shall be fined 300 of that country's currency for each piece of equipment found to be unmarked. As well as marked every soldier (not including militia units) must have the same uniform, this includes spec ops, marines, and any soldiers in between although while militia units must be marked they are not required to wear the same uniform.

Section 2: The execution of POWs while still in the field with soldiers

The execution of POWs (Prisoners Of War) will be a major offense and the soldier or soldiers who executed or helped execute said prisoner will be counter marshaled and after the war will be put on trial. This will be excused however if the POW or POWs try to attack the soldiers keeping them as prisoners. The best sentence a soldier can get if they break this rule is a minimum of 8 years in prison, the worst case if death.

Section 3: The fair treatment of POWs in the field 

If a soldier or team of soldiers is in possession of a POW or POWs the soldiers are expected to treat the POWs in humane ways. The POWs must be given food when there is food available and they will not be beaten or abused at any time. If a POW is found to have been mistreated each soldier will be held accountable. At best the soldier or soldiers will receive a demotion and be reassigned to a job away from combat. At worst they will receive a 5-8 year prison sentence.
