Blacke or Whyte?

[I like the name, and being a Nobel laureate, he's topical. Sir James Whyte Black (1924-), Phamacologist; Professor of Analytical Pharmacology, King's College Hospital Medical School, University of London (1984-1993). A pioneer in the research of beta-blockers and anti-ulcer drugs, he was awarded the 1988 Nobel Prize for Medicine jointly with Gertrude Elion and George Hitchings for their discoveries of important principles for drug treatment.]

</blockquote>To initiate a war of aggression, therefore, is not only an international crime, it is the supreme international crime differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole ... Nuremberg Tribunal judgement.
... if certain acts in violation of treaties are crimes, they are crimes whether the United States does them or whether Germany does them, and we are not prepared to lay down a rule of criminal conduct against others which we would not be willing to have invoked against us."
Supreme Court Justice Robert Jackson, US Prosecutor, Nuremberg</blockquote>
