There are a number of categories of crimes. Many of them have to do with failing to make the distinction between civilians and fighters, combatants. And of course the Bush-Cheney administration very early on decided to create a third, nonexistent category called unlawful combatants. But this designation doesn’t exist in the International Red Cross’s understanding; it doesn’t exist in the Geneva Convention’s. It was just a convenient way of saying this particular group of people, whoever it is that we choose to capture, detain forever, torture–they have no legal standing in the world. They exist outside of international law.

USA exonerated itself in both the Nuremburg and Tokyo war crimes courts. It deserves real trials, in Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, Yemen, Iran, and many other countries.


This is not well known: war crimes trials were held in Japan shortly before the official surrender. Captured B29 crews were tried, found guilty, and executed; very deservedly so.

#CollateralMurder - Launching a War of Aggression against Iraq - the Supreme Crime Against Humanity and lying profusely ("232 false statements") to do so.

When George W. Bush attacked and invaded Iraq without securing a new war resolution as required, from the United Nations Security Council [a signed Treaty], his invasion, occupation, and everything that followed became a War of Aggression, totally illegal and immoral from the very first day. #CoalitionDeaths by country. #PrimaFacieEvidence - #911Treason.
