Paul R. Pillar – The Afghan Lesson in Syria

The Russian military intervention to shore up the Assad regime in Syria, coupled with the previously begun U.S.-led military intervention in the same country — amid uncertainty about U.S. war aims and a reluctance to part with the objective of ousting Assad — presents the specter of a proxy war between Russia and the United States. Before the specter gets …

Warrior Connection – 09.13.15

Drones:

The US is using the drones in the context of the so called ‘war on terror’ to change international law. Over the last 150 years, U.S. citizens have written much of the international law that is out there, yet the U.S. generally exempts itself from those laws. Even so, this is a new trick, where by it is noted that the “Common Law” is defined by precedent (you can find this in ICRC documents on international law) and so, the U.S. now contends that if the most powerful nation in the world sets a new precedent, then so be it – that becomes the law.

The use of drones is particularly disturbing because they spy and use lethal force outside of designated war zones. This undermines those boundaries. I used this point in my testimony at one of the trials where I was a defendant. The Hague Conventions of the late 18th and early 19th centuries specifically say that if you have a weapon whose capabilities don’t fall under current international law, you can only use it in ways that abide by current law until the international community can come together and decide how it should be used. These days, the U.N. addresses these issues after the fact and the U.S. ignores the resultant treaties.

In the Hague conventions, they use the phrase “empire of the principles of international law” which can be counter-posed to “the international law of empire”. Nice language.

Israel (20,000km2) Considers the Annexation of Sinai (60,000km2) in An Act of War Against Egypt By Anthony Bellchambers

Such an aggressively expansionist move, ostensibly to deter political unrest on its southern border – which runs from Rafah to Eilat – but in reality an effort by the Netanyahu administration to become a hegemonic power in the region, would be strongly opposed by the U.S., Britain and Russia and the entire UNSC. In an action that would inevitably instigate …
