Reports of Shi’ite War Crimes in Tikrit

“We are investigating reports that scores of residents have been seized early last month and not heard of since, and that residents’ homes and businesses have been blown up or burned down after having been looted by militias,” said Rovera, senior crisis response adviser at Amnesty.

“There have also been reports of summary executions of men who may or may not have been involved in combat but who were killed after having been captured” when not in combat, she said.

        That somewhat forces the question: why are we supposed to care about ANY of that stuff?

    Muslims don’t understand the concept of ‘war crimes’. They think Mohammed was a hero.

      Between those of Muhammad’s wives who were women stolen during war, and Muhammad’s own approval of the torture of the leader of a Jewish tribe to get the location of their loot, the ‘Rules of War’ are something else entirely to Muslims.
