Human Rights International Law Military Force

I am particularly interested in how often these matters all link together.

Personally I think that International law is myth - particularly since the worlds most powerful country (or more specificaly its current government) breaks or disregards virtually all such laws (2nd Geneva convention anyone)

Military Force and Human rights are a different issue - in recent history in Bosnia, Kosova and East Timor and to lesser extent Afghanistan are all issues where Military Force has intervened on humanitarian grounds to protect Human Rights.

I'm not mentioning the big issue because there is already a huge thread on the Issue of Iraq. Althpough for me the commitment to bombing and cluster bombs and a minimal military presence on the ground do not reflect a commitment to Human Rights - nor does giving non-tendered contracts to your mates.

It's not a simple issue
