    It took me years to get people round a table to actually write a code of conduct for children in school, but even with this hard evidence none of the teachers can clearly define any of the rules. So in War is it OK to shoot someone in the head if they're facing you but it's a war crime if they're running away. Does anybody really believe in this? Aren't soldiers too scared to let the enemy anywhere near them especially when they and half their company might get blown up in the process. Don't terrible things happen in every War? Isn't War a testament to our lowliness, to our inabilty to evolve as Human beings, I think Herzog talks sense. I can't see it any other way. Just more killing, more mourning, more poverty,more alienation and more Nationalism, and it's all down to the guys at the top.Our wonderful self obsessed, opportunistic leaders, all sewn from the same cloth.
