How to avoid being charged with war crimes

Don't tell anyone your name:
The Military Censor is applying strict restrictions preventing the media from identifying officers who participated in the Gaza Strip fighting and information about them that may be used in legal proceedings against them abroad. There is growing concern at the Defense Ministry and the Ministry of Justice that Israeli officers will be singled out in a massive wave of suits for alleged human rights violations.
There are, of course, individual actions and some soldiers who are worse than others who should be charged individually with war crimes (or would be, if the Israeli government weren't aiding and abetting them by concealing their names). But all of them were participating in the ultimate war crime, bombing and invading a defenseless people, and the real war criminals live free of any danger (either military or legal) in Jerusalem and Washington.

There is, of course, an easier way to avoid being charged with war crimes. Don't commit them!
