Topic - If someone is Syria has broken international law...

Rob Exile Ward on 28 Aug 2013
... by using internationally outlawed chemical weapons, shouldn't the correct response be a thorough investigation, leading to trial at the Hague, in absentia if necessary? Who could argue with that (except the US of course, as they're not signatories to the War Crimes legislation for sadly obvious reasons...) It would hurt too: 'Daddy, daddy, we can't we go on holiday to Monaco with all our other friends?' 'Because Daddy is a convicted war criminal son, and will get locked up if he sets foot outside of Syria.'

How anyone can contemplate the alternative - lobbing vast quantities of high explosive at highly populated areas to 'teach them a lesson' - other than from reasons of personal inadequacy is quite beyond me.
