The juxtaposition could not have been more appropriate. The headline was, "3 British soldiers are charged with war crimes. Then, "stay tuned for the award winning documentary 'Stupidity' ". The term war crimes has always seemed absurd to me. Whenever I hear it I visualize the war planners getting together and agreeing to kill each other's soldiers in a humane way.

It is as if war is not a crime against humanity and yet within the framework of war there can be designated war crimes. It just doesn't make sense to me. It could be I simply lack the necessary "military intelligence" to understand the reasoning that this is war but don't be cruel.
