The BBC's Moral Maze radio programme discussed the moral aspects of putting people on trial for war crimes

John Laughland & David Chandler, Sir Geoffrey debate.

"do you think that it matters if your son or daughter has been cold bloodedly murdered as a civilian, whether they were murdered in Sarajevo or Africa, and if we are to take the consideration of victims into mind...people aren't denying war crimes, what they are asking is why was my child or husband cold bloodedly murdered...why is that not genocide? Why is that not a war crime? It's a society based on claims of recognition on an external agenda...and I think that's pretty unhealthy."

Oh, people die..and injustices continue...
