    INTERNATIONAL LAW: i) gives NATO and the USA exemptions from legal prosecution from any bombings of "innocent civilians" that get in the way of their pursuit of terrorists or anyone THEY call a WAR CRIMINAL. That's because they have POWER and can call the shots (legal wording be damned in favour of greater principle--their SUPERIORITY. ii) Muslim leaders who commit atrocities against "innocent Muslim civilians" in a war with other Muslim nations -ARE ALSO exepmt from prosecution...because the "fashionable HUMAN RIGHTS LEFT " gives not one iota if a Muslim kills a Muslim ("innocent" or not). iii) You ONLY get to be a WAR CRIMINAL these days if you are a small relatively powerless nation who happens to kill some "innocent Muslims' in a war with them over the usual (LAND,power,treasure) ... AND of course ESPECIALLY if you are ISRAEL you can expect the "WORLD COMMUNUTY " including its despotic governments to hold you to standards that they themselves ignore/abhorr.
