and please cite the law international or otherwise that mandates that wars have to be fair? sure we have basic laws to prevent certain weapons and actions on the battlefield but i cant think of one that deals with the defender having to have the same capability as the aggressor.going back to the ww1/2 days i dont think even with the greif Germany got for its taking of land and territory from its enemies that led up to ww2 that any one every complained that they were being "unfair" by invading several nations who capabilities were dwarfed by their own sure he did lots of illegal shady stuff but i dont recall the complaints being based on what they used when they did it ,although ironically in ww1 they tried to ban the use of shotguns by Americans and even threatened to execute the troops in possession of such weapons the usa's response was to tell them to pound sand and they sent in more shotguns to play a small role helping clear the trenches of ww1.
A war crime is a serious violation of the laws and customs of war (also known as international humanitarian law) giving rise to individual criminal responsibility. Examples of war crimes such as:
murdering, mistreating, or deporting civilian residents of an occupied territory to slave labor camps
murdering or mistreating prisoners of war or civilian internees.
forcing protected persons to serve in the forces of a hostile power
killing or punishing spies or other persons convicted of war crimes without a fair trial
wantonly destroying cities, towns, villages, or any object not warranted by military necessity
