In light of the #VA scandal... When it comes to war, would it be too far fetched, "...to limit the horror of war upon and between professional soldiers only?"  When our vets return from war why is it like pullin' teeth without novocaine to get health care?  It ought to be as automatic as the process of re-introducing astronauts into the Earth's atmosphere.  But back to war--

That thing they call 'collateral damage' might be just an excuse for the folks who engage in distasteful war (for profit), allowing for them to deflect from their laziness, right?  I came across this link when looking for the legal definition of crimes against humanity.  You may also find of interest the definitions of:
* Torture
* Forced pregnancy
* Enforced disappearance of persons
...and a few others.  This is the unfortunate SIGN OF OUR TIMES people.  We've got a lot of work ahead of us.  ~djg

  • Deuteronomy 25:5-10

    New International Version (NIV)

    If brothers are living together and one of them dies without a son, his widow must not marry outside the family. Her husband’s brother shall take her and marry her and fulfill the duty of a brother-in-law to her. The first son she bears shall carry on the name of the dead brother so that his name will not be blotted out from Israel.

    However, if a man does not want to marry his brother’s wife, she shall go to the elders at the town gate and say, “My husband’s brother refuses to carry on his brother’s name inIsrael. He will not fulfill the duty of a brother-in-law to me.” Then the elders of his town shall summon him and talk to him. If he persists in saying, “I do not want to marry her,” his brother’s widow shall go up to him in the presence of the elders, take off one of his sandals, spit in his face and say, “This is what is done to the man who will not build up his brother’s family line.” 10 That man’s line shall be known in Israel as The Family of the Unsandaled.

  • Forced pregnancy, torture, and disappearance of persons has been around forever,  if you believe in it,  the bible will tell you this. The current difference is that those who have dominating tendencies have ovrrseen the development of the most powerful tool so far devised in human history. We will need to be much more creative than we currently are if we are to succeed.
