Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
One could make a case that the American invaders and occupiers of Vietnam were illegal combatants - and that would include John McCain.  The war itself was illegal and so were a multitude of strategies, tactics, and individual actions.

One can make an even stronger case that the American militias that fought King George were "illegal combatants."

The alleged distinction between legal and illegal combatants is toxic.
