Respecting the Captured States

U.S. troops or contractors who commit "major and premeditated murders" in Iraq while off-duty and outside U.S. facilities will fall under the jurisdiction of the government Iraq. - Draft Agreement signed between the governments of the United States and Iraq

To the victor goes the spoils of war. However, it doesn't mean that the spoils can be handled in any manner that may suit the victors fantasy. In regard to this thing, human life should be treated with utmost dignity in order for reconstruction of destroyed states proceed with haste. Victors should make ethical treatment of all living things a paramount concern in order for them to rightfully expect the same kind of treatment for comrades that are captured by the enemies.

Warfare should be fought along ethical boundaries for man is supposed to be above all lifeforms in this kingdom. Otherwise, there will exist no difference between man and beast.
