Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I just believe that in this tangled, chaotic world we live in history continually repeats itself, regardless of humanity's best intentions.  While Nurnberg and other historical cases involving prosecutions for war crimes may be recalled, I would predict that court decisions in the current cases will turn upon more recent events and court decisions.  

The other thing is that justice is not rendered exactly equally with regard to location and time.  Circumstances change even though the crimes remain basically the same. When circumstances change, laws and treaties may be viewed differently.  My opinion, take it or leave it.
