Moral Question

If it's a war crime to shoot and/or decapitate a young child, then how is it not a war crime to intentionally incinerate that same child from 20,000 feet?......I'm sorry but I continue to have a problem with this (especially since, as Professor Grayling has astutely pointed out, it did precious little to end the conflict - the precision air-strikes on fuel lines were significantly more effective).

War crimes only apply to the losers...at least that is the way they are applied.

"War is hell," someone way more famous then me said that.

Jerry, I guess that General LeMay (the braintrust behind the fire-bombing in Japan) basically admitted that.
