No, in fact, you haven't.

Is there some reason you keep veering from the topic?
The topic, my friend, is war crimes - and in discussing whether a crime exists, application of the law is an implied requirement. I am simply asking that it be part of the discussion, rather than a prop.

Now, I have to go do some things in the real world, so I must desist for the nonce. I may, or may not, be able to be back.

A well reasoned argument is like a diamond: impervious to corruption and crystal clear - and infinitely rarer.

Here, as elsewhere, people are outraged at what feels like a rigged game -- an economy that won't respond, a democracy that won't listen, and a financial sector that holds all the cards. - Robert Reich
