    The Republican Right of the United States and the Right of Israel have unwittingly joined Slobadan Milosevic, the butchers of Ruwanda, and the Khemer Rouge of Pol Pot in establishing the new limits for the definition of War Criminal. None of those mentioned ever thought for a moment that their most depraved desires might constitute a 'war crime." That it would seem had always been reserved for losers. It still is except in the most extreme examples. In the worst cases it can now be applied to some brute who wishes to vacation outside of his home nation. This whole concept started before WW II, in Nanking, and came to fruition in Nuremberg after the fall of the definitive 'conservative' regime of the 20th century. Now Conservatives everywhere must consider that they might be restrained from world travel and their their criminally seized riches might be only expendable in their home nations - and only then until a decent government is elected. What a conundrum!
