Ignorance of the Law

Ignorantia juris non excusat. Latin for the legal principal ignorance of the law is no excuse. Thousands of American soldiers falsely imagine they have committed no crime by aiding and abetting either of two illegal aggressive wars because no one in the military formally explained the facts of life to them. Others imagine because the USA is the dominant world power and no one dare, for now, prosecute their war crimes, that American soldiers are hence innocent of capital war crimes.
