Crimes against peace were invented after the Second World War. They were applied post facto, after the events. In other words the alleged crimes were committed while they were not illegal. Perhaps they should have been but that is another issue. Various Nazis were screwed at the Nuremberg War Trials. Now, in this foul year of Our Lord, 2014 AD, Iraq is being invaded again by the political criminals who run America, England & various other countries.
