Summary:

The protection of civilians is the quintessence of international humanitarian law also known as the law of armed conflicts, humanitarian law or simply put, the law of war. It is a core component of public international law which comprises of rules which seek to restrict the means and method of warfare and also to protect people who are no longer taking part in hostilities as well as civilians in time of armed conflicts. This law is often flouted by most belligerents when engaged in armed conflict. Without necessarily taking a retrospect or laying emphasis into the just cause of war as The George W. Bush administration claims that its cause and conduct in counter-terror war are just, such a claim invites moral assessment. How do normative beliefs and ethical concerns affect U.S. conduct in the counter-terror war? Is the war just in cause and conduct? Many analysts argue that warfare is “transformed” Is it possible to fight a just counter-terror war in the Cameroonian context? The transformation of war raises new questions for ‘just war theory’ itself.
