RECOGNIZING OUR CO-BELLIGERENT STATUS

A state becomes a party to an ongoing interstate armed conflict when it provides significant operational, logistical, or intelligence support to an existing, active belligerent. States that are currently providing Ukraine with such assistance have thus already entered the armed conflict against Russia.

Instead, they should redouble their efforts to support the collective defense of Ukraine in full recognition of their participation in the war.

  3. International humanitarian law prohibits the establishment of courts to judge POWs,  willfully depriving a prisoner of war of the rights of fair and regular trial amounts to a war crime.

A PRAGMATIC VISION NOT TO CHANGE THE WORLD IS NEEDED

  1.  fight we are in is for something broader and more fundamental than democracy against autocracy. It is the right of peoples the world over to determine their own futures and to be free from naked aggression. This requires an orderly world where the law of the jungle does not operate.

The fact that nondemocratic systems have been so widespread and growing in number is not because evil rules the world, but because in many places circumstances are simply not ripe for stable democracy.
