by domestic legal systems called "forfeiture". One forfeits anything that is used for criminal purposes. International law would do well to adopt this principle. For if not, exactly what deters rogues like Assad, and many others, from attacking countries with a view to eliminating them? The loss of soldiers that Assad and other maniacs couldn't care less about is no deterrent. Loss of the Golan through forfeiture is where its at. The beauty of the principle is that no country has to bear the risk of loss of its land base through forfeiture. And I'm not talking about defensive occupation which is a well recognized international legal principle which the U.N. asserted had application to Israel's occupation of Arab lands in 1967.
