Though Jerusalem rarely voices its opinion on the raging Syrian war, Israel secretly prefers war of attrition between the Assad's regime and its enemies.18:23 08.02.16 | 0 comments
Tony: in assymetric warfare, that is war between state vs. nonstate, the only rule that applies is "the body count" -- whoever has the most bodies on their belt, wins. According to you, Tony, the state is required to fight this assymetric war against these nonstate tribal arabs by the rules that apply to "just wars" -- between states. Well, in 1899-1907CE The Hague Conventions, and the Geneva Protocol, were drawn up to address the use of weapons of war; the Geneva Conventions came later, after WWII, and applied at times of war and armed conflict to GOVERNMENTS who have ratified its terms. I don't recall reading that any arab nation-states, much less any nonstate tribal arabs, having signed on to any of these conventions, protocols or treaties. Double standards=hypocrisy!
