Has your nation ever committed a war crime?

Postby Eritrea- » Fri Jun 24, 2022 12:11 pm

Eritrea’s military leader, General Filipos Woldeyohannes, is actually under U.S. sanctions for war crimes committed by the Eritrean Armed Forces, and militias under its command, over the course of the Tigray War. Crimes committed include the torture and execution of civilians, sexual violence as a weapon of war and a scorched earth policy.

The Aksum massacre took place in December 2020, and saw Eritrean National Army soldiers shoot dead 300 to 800 Tigrayan civilians.

One other incident was the Adigrat medical facility air strike. A hospital, clearly marked and placed on so-called “Do Not Target” lists, was hit by three separate airstrikes from a pair of Eritrean Su-25 attack jets. Thirty-eight civilians were killed. The Eritrean Defence Ministry denied responsibility, though later admitted the incident, blaming it on a communications failure.

In the present day, no. Rhodevus does not commit war crimes. But in the past, definitely. During its stint as a naval superpower and empire, Rhodevus had the habit of committing war crimes. In 1762, Rhodevus lead the formation of the Imperial Formations Treaty, a globally recognized code of conduct for war and considered a backbone to the modern day Treaties for War Crimes. Of course, Rhodevus used it as a way to curry favour and also use the loopholes in the treaty they themselves created to commit war crimes and show that legally, they didn't commit any war crimes. Luckily, the Rhodeve empire fell in 1845 and gave rise to a much less dastardly country.

Yes, multiple and it resulted in the execution of Rangatira Te Rata Pakanga in 1980.

The first major tranche of war crimes committed by Tangatarehua were in the 1950s when it invaded a series of smaller nations with the goal of creating a pan-Polynesian empire before ultimately losing said war.

Then in the 1970s, Tangatarehua came to the aid of ally being invaded but in the process committed a series of atrocities most notoriously including industrial-scale cannibalism of captured soldiers and civilians, as well as death marches, forced labour and attempted genocide.

Since the end of that war, Tangatarehua adopted a new constitution in which it renounced its right to declare war and disbanded the Imperial Armed Forces (in favour of a smaller Tangatarehua Self-Defence Force).

In modern times, Tangatarehua is a democratic and pacifist nation and the national psyche is one of a people who are racked with guilt over the atrocities their nation committed in the past.

1. Mass torture of Hungarians in the Hungarian Invasions
2. During WW2, Nitranan Exile Legion has committed several war crimes against the German population.
3. During the interwar period (mainly the years 1937-1938) antisemitism spiked and there were several Pogroms in which some members of the army have taken part in.
Taiwan is a country, Tianmen protests DID happen, and the Chinese government is a dictatorship. Deal with it.

But the most notorious and sadistic one happened about a 1000 years ago, during the time Eros prime was beginning to colonize other planets. The Hopdek Massacre in the hopdek planet (closest planet to Eros). Where Eroxi soldiers raped and killed every single Hopdeker. They even crucified the infants. This was due to human supremacy.

Prolly only once. We invaded a country, Barasila, but it was because they were kidnapping children, which is probably a war crime in and of itself. Oh, and, yeah, we bombed some civilian places, but it wasn't intentional.

Yes, as have the rebel groups fighting against the government. Both sides of the civil war have targeted medical facilities, aid convoys and civilian targets.

In July 2021, a Mahritanian Air Force ground attack aircraft, reportedly a Brazilian-made Super Tucano, dropped mustard gas on a terrorist training facility in the Northern Desert. Seventy-eight were killed.

In April 2022, a medical facility in the city of Tanjir was hit by an unguided bomb dropped from a Mahritanian Air Force Mi-24 attack helicopter. Nine people were killed with dozens injured.

During the Allied invasion of Germany in 1945, 3 Comicslandian infantry divisions sent to the French front occupied Düsseldorf for about 2 months. It is estimated that during the occupation 4000 civilians were suspected of being undercover German divisions and killed, 200 houses were razed to the ground.More than 200 women were harassed and about 700 people were taken prisoners of war.In addition, a hospital, the town hall and an extermination camp with some people still inside were heavily bombed

Yes, several. In fact, the creation of the Orwell Society could be considered, in itself, a war crime. I won't get into the details, but let's just say that some national leaders were swiflty executed, which created a war that was over with as soon as it started. When it was almk said and done, much of Asia was conquered and millions died.

Corporoat has never directly committed a war crime, but it does have a bad reputation of helping other groups commit them. The nation is notorious for having completely unregulated markets and no-questions-asked arms deals, meaning that if you have enough money, you can get your hands on pretty much anything. Whenever news breaks that a terrorist group has obtained weapons of mass destruction, all fingers immediately point to Corporoat (and they're usually right).

Crossoveria has definitely committed a war crime. The most famous one was in 1958, when the government ordered the invasion and occupation of the Leaf Islands, an archipelago which the founder and then Supreme Leader Kais Al Abidine Baldemore was exiled before the revolution in 1954. The invasion took place on September 17, and the archipelago was annexed into the country as a territory. Because of Baldemore's anti-imperialist views, he was condemned for violating the principles of his own ideology.

Who's to say that the way we fight wars is a crime? We're not under the jurisdiction of any authority but our own, and WE say that everything we do is LEGAL. *Smirks, somewhat obnoxiously*

Acts that are LEGAL under the only laws that count - OURS - include:

-Genocide, to bring enemy population levels down to easily-controlled numbers as well as to wipe out non-useful specimens
-Cultural genocide for any survivors. One of the things this involves is taking all infants (babies too young to ever remember life before our victory) and bringing them up in our Raising Centers, with NO contact with their elder species-mates.
-Mass looting right after combat operations (in fact, the chance to get war loot is an important motivator for our troops)
-The ongoing taking of all desired resources of the invaded planet, once we win and pacify it.
-Summarily executing captured prisoners
-Enslavement of enemy populations
-Major genetic engineering of enslaved enemy populations to make them into good, obedient slaves. Combined with growing up entirely in our Raising Centers, this creates an unbreakable effect.
-Sterilization of enemy populations. If we want more of their species, we grow them in cloning centers - according to the specs developed in the genetic engineering program.
-Medical experimentation on a random selection of enemies, whether or not they're soldiers
-Biological warfare


And many other things along these lines.

We have done everything listed, and more. About the only thing we haven't done is mass rape, and that's just because we're machines and get nothing out of sex (and find other methods far more effective for the goal of dominating a population). Clearly, we are not signatories to anything like the silly "Geneva Convention" that had been in place on the first organic world that we took over.

When we go to war, the goal is to win and destroy any chance that the enemy will ever regroup to fight us again. We are NOT there to be nice or even civil. It's a WAR! We treat it as such!
No war RPs; no open RPs.

Yes, technically. During the Romanic Imperium civil war, The Republic of Toonga committed heinous war crimes. When they were eventually driven out of Romanic Imperium by Aumburan armed forces, many were taken captive. Many of the P.O.W.s were treated reasonably, but there were reports from two sergeants and one lieutenant that, upon capturing Toongan troops and learning of their crimes, two Aumburan platoons preceded to shoot dead all surrendering Toongan soldiers before feeding their corpses to pigs. One report even stated that Aumburan troops allowed citizens of the nation Toonga invaded to personally kill captured Toongan troops.

No as official policy in contrary to our ucenan foes. In general my regular and foreign trained and equipped forces were less prone to commit war crimes than guerrillas and paramilitary forces, not under total control of the provisional Government.


My forces often retaliated the previous war crimes and the human cleansing by Ucenan forces and paramilitaries during my Independence war. As tide of war turned. In general We took POWs from regular units and generally We treated them better then they expected and deserved.

Post-war special war crimes tribunal indicted war criminals from both sides. But my Government often offered a defense and immediately rehabilitated those acquitted. And amnestied, pardoned or indulted most condemned BNA and BNF members condemned by the tribunals.
While We haven't shown the same quickness to pardon and rehabilitate those condemned from the ucenan side.
