    Unlike the 2 cases i pointed out in pt. 1 (Moses killing the Egyptian overseer and the German Officer attempt to kill Hitler--both GOOD kills or kill attemots for humanity),the thornier isue of killing "innocent civilians" including babies and their parents in a WAR on one's enemy is not a black and white "human rights" issue BECAUSE the human "right to life" could be argued to be suspended during WAR -because LOGICALLY all WAR would otherwise be a CRIMINAL ACTIVITY -but clearly not a single government in the world would agree to that. THUS we have ILLOGICAL STUPID "international humanitarian laws' that try to distinguish EXCESSIVE KILLING in war against "civilians" when in fact only ONLY the victors or their allies in such wars get to prosecute the losers under these "selective" "Laws" OR where a loser group in a war gets to plea to the Legal Tribunal for prpaganda points against the perceived winner of the skirmish who killed some civilians in the clash ...
