Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

These figure were then compared to the number of civilian casualties during each of these 3 wars. I limited the casualties to civilians because this is a priori what constitutes a war crime.

Er No, that would be a war crime under the 4th Geneva convention, dealing with the mistreatment of civilians, you can be indicted under the first three for war crimes too, so any mistreatment of prisoners of war also would count as war crimes dealt with under ICTY rules. So the base numbers you are working from are not necessarily correct.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
