At the time of WWI the ratio of dead civilians to dead soldiers was about 1 to 10. It became, by now, now about 10 to 1.... (just think of Darfur, Somalia, Iraq, etc, where the dead are in the hundreds of thousands, not 21 dead...) ..... Most wars today are wars between Muslims among themselves or between Muslims against the West ..... AND THE MUSLIM METHOD OF WAR CONSISTS, MOSTLY, OF KILLING CIVILIANS ,... Iraq is an example .... Therefore, all present beautiful rules of fighting, as accepted by UNHCR, or Red Cross, are simply impossible to follow when one side, be it American, Russian, or Israeli, cannot do what the other does with impunity, as in Russia, where hundreds of small children were killed at Beslan in front of the entire world watching in horror. By the way, was Russia punished by UNHCR? And, what is the next killing system? The widespread use of rockets which cannot differentiate military from civilians. That is now THE PRIDE of Iran, Syria, Hamas and Hezbollah. And the judges of THE VICTIMS OF THOSE murderers are individuals like Mr. Goldstone or Mrs. Ashton, newspapers like The Guardian - UK, and the UNHCR! .... speaking of "proportionality"! A joke adopted by the whole unthinking world ....
