After 50 years, there is unusual scrutiny of events that involved civilians during the Korean War.
For some reason, the victims of this war are now supposed to be compensated.
Does that mean that all the civilian bombings of the Albanians and Serbians will end in compensation for them?
And who should pay for these casualties of war? Should it be the family of the soldier who is responsible for their deaths? Should it be the country he was serving under?
Should it be, in the case of South Korea, the United Nations who sanctioned the U.S. military involvement there to save them from communist oppression?
But what is really unusual, is this comes at a time when the United Nations has stated that human rights considerations must sometimes take precedence over the right of national sovereignty.
What does that mean with the precedent of compensating civilian casualties of war?
Does it mean the United Nations could never have a peace keeping mission in a country where human rights are being violated, because they could be responsible for the death of innocent people?
And wouldn’t this contradict their mission of protecting human rights?
