Format: Paperback. Dominic McGoldrick, Professor of Public International Law at the University of Liverpool, has written a fascinating and thoughtful analysis of the wars on terrorism and Iraq. Chapter 1 studies the relationship between war and international law.
Chapter 3 debates the issues of international law and morality raised by the two wars and their implications for human rights. He concludes, "Once prisoners of war were taken and other persons were detained then, in principle, the European Convention on Human Rights came into play on the basis that those persons were within the effective control of the detaining state assuming it is a state party to the ECHR. The UK submission in Bankovic appeared to concede this point.
McGoldrick cites Professor Vaughan Lowe, "It is simply unacceptable that a step as serious and important as a massive military attack upon a State should be launched on the basis of a legal argument dependent upon dubious inferences drawn from silences in Resolution and the muffled echoes of earlier resolutions, unsupported by any contemporary authorisation to use force.

No domestic court or authority in the United States or the United Kingdom would tolerate governmental action based upon such flimsy arguments.
