New Morality for War?
NP - Dream Theater - Beyond This Life
Read the link, its about how the UK Defense Secretary is suggesting that the current rules of war and the Geneva convention are out of date. It starts with that. But its worrying. He hasn't explicity said anything, but its easily possible this could be a prelude to a changing of internationally accepted morality when it comes to war and that. Right now we have standards (in theory), and protections guaranteeing human rights. Like I said, nothing is said in the above link, but I feel it might be the start of the Western powers pushing for more legitimacy for the kind of "justice" thats seen in Guantanamo Bay and the like - more secrecy, more holdings without trials, more extraordinary rendition, etc. The stuff that happens, but under a veil of secrecy, may well be legitimised and legalised in the coming years.
