two things on this one... first, nowadays "enemy gets a vote" interfaces with extreme casualty aversion, the conspiracy culture (fueled by fringe historians and hundreds of Capricorn One-esque movies and tv shows), media sensationalism and modern day litigiousness (where someone you can sue (ie not the enemy) always has to be at fault).  The result is that "enemy gets a vote" is answered with "you should have know"' or "you must have known" (conspiracy) and "it isn't the enemy's fault it is yours."
