Boyle: New Pentagon War Manual Reduces Us To “Level of Nazis”

by Sherwood Ross

The Pentagon’s new Law of War Manual(LOWM) sanctioning nuclear attacks and the killing of civilians, “reads like it was written by Hitler’s Ministry of War,” says international law authority Francis Boyle of the University of Illinois at Champaign.

“Historically, this is a terrible development,” he added in an exclusive interview with [Ross]. “We are reducing ourselves to the level of the Nazis.”

The grim, 1,165-page-long document, issued in June by the Defense Department’s Office of the General Counsel, also sanctions the use of napalm, herbicides, depleted uranium, and drone missile strikes, among other barbarities.
