Synopsis: Approximately 10,000 "War Crimes Trials" have been held since 1945. Trials of Japanese military personnel ended in 1949, yet "war crimes trials" of Germans and Eastern Europeans continue to date.
Almost invariably, the charge is "violation of the laws and customs of war," derived, in turn, from international conventions signed at the Hague in 1899 and 1907.
That these trials have little or no basis in law is clear from the wording of the treaties which are said to have been violated.
The illegalities of "war crimes" proceedings include the admissibility of oral and written hearsay; the introduction of the concept of "conspiracy" into international law (unknown prior to 1945); the total lack of any pre-trial inquest or forensic evidence; and trial before a court itself composed of actual "war criminals."
To quote the writings of Telford Taylor:
"The issues surrounding the war crimes trials are numerous and complex; discussion and criticism of what was done should be welcomed by all who hope for a continuing development of international law... but what should have been done instead is a problem generally ignored by those who condemn what was done in fact."
The alternative is a fair trial before an impartial court under existing procedures and proper rules of evidence.

From the Author:
Carlos W. Porter's Interview to the Blood and Honour website
B&H: Hello, Mr. Porter, may we commence with the most typical question possible: could you please introduce yourself swiftly to our readership?
C.W. Porter: As far as I know I am the only person who ever read the Nuremberg Trial transcript all the way through, not once, but several times. I have three different versions of it. I also have the complete Tokyo Trial transcript, 52,000 pages.
I have an Internet site, with 900 files on war crimes and Nuremberg, including 600 graphics: scans of actual pages from the Nuremberg Trial transcript, scans of the so-called "original" Nuremberg Trial documents, and translations. People quote these things, but they never look at them. Some of these documents have never even translated before. These are documents which most historians have never seen. I have thousands of dollars worth of law books, criminal law, international law, and I have written a number of articles on international law.
Nuremberg is not valid law. Nothing in international law gives the victor power to legislate in international law. Most of the post-war trials had no basis in law; I don't know of any offhand that did. Maybe some of the minor Japanese trials. But I doubt it.
In 1900, Britain invaded the Boer Republics, stole the gold mines, turned the Western Transvaal into a "smoking desert" (in their own words), imprisoned 110,000 women and children in concentration camps where 28,000 of them died, then, after the war, they tried and shot 2 Boer officers for "misusing a flag of truce"! You're wasting your time looking for justice in any post-war trial. They are simply a continuation of the war.
B&H: If I am not mistaken your first publication 'Made in Russia: The Holocaust' deals with the grotesque exaggerations of the Allies concerning the so-called "judeocide". Could you name a few?
C.W. Porter: Steaming people to death like lobsters at 10 "steam chambers" at Treblinka, zapping them to death with mass electrical shocks, blasting them into the Twilight Zone with atomic bombs, killing 840,000 Russians in 30 days at Sachsenhausen with a pedal-driven brain-bashing machine and burning them all in 4 portable ovens, forcing people to climb trees, then cutting the trees down (as a method of murder),frying chambers, quicklime chambers, vacuum chambers, quicklime chambers, etc. etc. I collected about a hundred of these, plus examples of all their grotesque legal irregularities and documentary absurdities. The book is 428 pages long. It discusses the prosecution case exclusively, and is now back in print, available on Amazon.
The book begins with the rhetorical question: If the Germans gassed millions of Jews, did they also...
