Back in the 80s I taught a lot of Law of Armed Conflict classes to Air Force personnel in Japan.  Things have gotten increasingly more complicated since then, although the law itself hasn't changed much.  For those of you interested in such things, JURIST's Paper Chase has a good post with some links:

The law of war.  Military action against Iraq will set the stage for a variety of legal problems and issues relating not so much to the overall legality of the operation but to its implementation consistent with the so-called "law of war" or "law of armed conflict". Review a brief backgrounder on possible legal problem areas for an invasion of Iraq - including human shields, targetting, collateral damage, and weapons of mass destruction - from the Washington DC-based Center for Defense Information. For a comprehensive recent survey of the law of armed conflict, see The Law of War Workshop Deskbook [PDF], published in 2000 by the the International and Operational Law Department of the US Army's Judge Advocate General's School.
