Sacrificing innocents to protect their killers: Gitmo

Barry Artiste Op/Ed

When those (Terrorists) do not play by international military rules by using women and children as human shields, in order to prey on our humane sensibilities in order to kill us, deserve no quarter from legitimate Military Forces under the Geneva Convention.

When the world judged the Nazi’s in the Nuremberg Trials of 1945-46, the decisions were swift, the executions and punishments equally so. The efficiency of the Germans was so precise, that every last incriminating detail of the Third Reich was documented by the defendants themselves. Every person responsible in the chain of command could be identified and found culpable. The Germans left the largest forensic evidence to a crime in the history of humanity, and so when we look back at how swiftly justice was rendered, it seems odd that we cannot here in the twenty-first century find it equally simple to bring to justice those people responsible for acts of terrorism against the innocent.
