Is the soldier off the hook?
In such a war, there will be two types of soldiers.
Type 1: Joined up before the conflict was begun.
Should this type refuse to fight on conscientious grounds? If they fail to lodge an objection and happily go and take part in the mass murder (which is what war is), should they be held to account afterwards?
Type 2: Joined up after the conflict was begun.
Should they be held to account afterwards?
Why should soldiers be allowed the Nuremberg Defence when this was clearly disallowed at the Nuremberg trials?
(That should do to kick of this debate.)
