IMO, Hezbollah is committing crimes against humanity, but only Israel is a party to the Geneva Conventions. Also Hezbollah is not a party to the
International Criminal Court.
Common Article 3 Of Geneva Conventions
With all that in mind, war is a thieves and murderers playland. A lawful or PC war is a fool's fallacy, when the gloves really come off civilians and
children are slaughtered en masse, their cities leveled and destroyed, their lands burned and turned into a toxic waste dumps. It all falls back to
the winner and they decide what justice will be done, if any. (i.e. Dropping the bomb on Nagasaki and Hiroshima, no one was charge with a war crime.)
Good people demand accountability, since criminals sure as hell won't. Letting war crimes persist could very well lead to nuclear weapon usage,
ethnic cleansing, infanticide, genocide, debtor prison, and slavery becoming the new lawful norms.
So we have chosen to roll the war bones, knowing the destoyer uses loaded dice...
Best not crap out, cause there will be hell to pay...bank on it.
