Law means order and restraint and can act to deter war, while war means the absence of both. Efforts to rule war are as old as war in itself. Nations have always strived to restrict war crimes with legal codes from ancient times. Advocates of such efforts assume that warfare in rational rules can in some way humanize war and control the brutality. The story reveals that the development of a more elaborated legal order has been preceded by the increasing violence and destructiveness of the modern war. It also supports the perception that anti-war was lawless and had legal codes with humanitarian provisions similar to the modern war laws. Nevertheless, the two world war functions of humanitarian law were missing. They saw the law stored to the dictatorship of battle, reduced to a propaganda battlefield where warlords organized attacks and counter attacks. In the end, the law failed to protect civilians from scary new weapons and tactics. Both World War demonstrated the inadequacy of the existing war of war in order to prevent the wartime times from occurring.
Today, the International Humanitarian Law (IHL), which distinguishes between laws governing the city to force (jus ad bellum) and laws governing jus in bello. Jus in Bello is further divided into humanitarian laws (Geneva laws), which protect specific classes of war victims such as prisoners of war and the war crimes (The Hague Laws), which govern the overall methods and methods of war. It is remarkable that Geneva's laws served the interests of the more powerful nations.
Humanitarian law and the war laws show the interests of the nations that dominated the international conferences where these laws were drafted. Humanitarian law is characterized by strict prohibition, while the Hague teams are vaguely formulated and allowed with less regard to humanitarian consequences. It is important to understand that with the development of these legal principles, war has long been limited to a large number of factors that are independent of the law. For complex military, political and economic reasons, warlords tend to use the least power required to achieve their political goals.
A detailed understanding that requires it requires in-depth knowledge of the role of the law in deterring acts of war. By sanctioning the military necessity, the warfare asks that only men of war act in accordance with military self-interest. Belligenter who meets this requirement, in turn, receives a powerful platform to convince and protect its controversial challenge from humanitarian challenges. The war of war's warriors to undermine their own human rhetoric also carries an implicit warning for future attempts to rule war. The promotion of probably human laws can serve the purpose of subconscious violence.
Rousseau rightly cites: The war's purpose is to suppress an enemy state, a warrior has the right to kill the defenders of that state while they are armed. but as soon as they lay down their arms and abandonment, they cease to be either enemies or instruments of the enemy. They simply become men once more, and no-one is longer entitled to take their lives. War gives no right to influence more destruction than is required for victory. In this way, Rousseau was used as the basis for the war. Modern war laws, however, require precedents in the Middle Ages. A more in-depth view of this era, however, finds the same coexistence between layers and cruelties.
It is very important that the war crimes should be revised and re-coded from time to time, taking into account the provisions of the Charter of International Disputes, which prohibit the use of force. The war does not only affect the warriors but also the civilians and, in most cases, the nature of the war is such that compliance with war rules becomes impossible. Therefore, there is a need to maintain human rights during the war more specifically to protect the civilian population. Where power prevails, it is the basic function of the law to help in claiming power. In a varied and distinct manner, the International Humanitarian Law appropriately serves this purpose.
