    PSM: "A loophole in British law - in the International Criminal Court Act 2001 and the Criminal Justice Act 1988 - allows private individual complaints of "war crimes" to be lodged against military personnel, even if they are not British citizens and the alleged crimes were committed elsewhere." I suggest you grab your copy of Geneva Convention IV, PETER SM, and thumb your way down to Article 146. There you'll see that what you are describing as a "loophole" is actually an obligation of every High Contracting Party to the convention.
