Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Well I am an adult now and I can tell you that I highly am suspicious that there was any rule of law EVER on this planet when it comes to international affairs. Really...The winners of war (or superpowers nowadays) would simply sit down and make a deal between them. Fuck the war crimes and all those international laws about occupation and responsibilities. They are made for losers.
It was like that from the beginning of time and will never change. But it's entertaining to try to pick up all the pieces and strings...So keep up.
As for me morally and legally (in my mind) it is an occupation where ever one inch of the country is occupied by foreign military. And of course USA is Roman Empire of our times. Simple as that. Why would they need to follow rules and laws? Because eventually that kind of arrogance will bring them down sooner rather than later. Just have a quick look in Afghanistan, Iraq...what an utter mess...they are losing authority and respect worldwide and they definitely start to look more like losers. I guess they do not even know how the hell to get out from the mess they created...Is that oil really praiseworthy?
