Slobo's Shill Dance?

Yes, I knew what you were hinting at.  However, public trials with
juries of "peers" with convictions for capital offenses, with sentences
meted out by those same juries can hardly be called war crimes.  Maybe
you can convince me that capital punishment is barbarous, morally
wrong, and should be abolished, but not that it's a war crime.

And thus concludes this threadlet.

You can try "War Commanders" for lots of things, but disbarment
is a civil penalty, not a criminal manner.

The repetition is still bad form.

drunken sailors spend their own money.
