Other
writers
have
suggested
that
a
domestic
war
crimes
prosecution
apparatus,
separate
from
the
Department
of
Defense,
would
be
the
best
way
to
ensure
U.S.
compliance
with
the
laws
of
war.”

While
an
independent
criminal
prosecution
system
might
help
enforce
compliance
with
the
law
of
war,
a
criminal
system
would
not
provide
compensation
to
victims,
nor
would
it
provide
comfort
to
those
victims
whose
cases
are
not
pursued
by
the
prosecution
authority,
which
might
be
influenced
by
domestic
political
pressures
and
resource
limitations.
Therefore,
many
victims
would
have
no
practical
method
to
seek
justice
and
compensation.
A
provision
for
an
effective
civil
claims
mechanism
for
foreign
war
crimes
victims,
in
addition
to
the
diligent
criminal
prosecution
of
offenders,
would
provide
for
more
comprehensive
administration
of
justice.
We
should
compensate
war
crime
victims
because
the
United
States
prides
itself
on
its
adherence
to
the
rule
of
law.
If
the
United
States
truly
desires
to
conduct
its
military
operations
in
a
spirit
of
justice
and
benevolence,
there
is
little
room
for
law
of
war
violations,
and
we
should
not
tolerate
the
existence
of
legions
of
aggrieved
war
crimes
victims
unable
to
gain
justice …
If
the
U.S.
military
continues
to
carry
out
combat
operations
with
the
discipline
and
consideration
for
international
law
that
characterized
the
Persian
Gulf
operation,”
3
tort
liability
for
war
crimes
should
not
be
a
major
concern.
The
presence
of
the
remedy,
however,
would
demonstrate
to
the
world
and
to
U.S.
citizens
that
the
United
States
is
serious
about
adhering
to
the
rule
of
law
in
its
conduct
of
military
operations.
