12. General Bella, Intelligence Officer of the V Aggressor Armored Army, has decided to
employ spies in order to obtain information as to the disposition of B's troops facing that
army. All of these civilian spies are caught and executed by the B's. Bella himself is
captured during a B offensive and is tried for a violation of the laws and customs of war
because he employed spies. General Bella's action was not a violation of the laws and
customs of war.
13. General Boaz, a commander of the 47th Aggressor Tank Division, has been brought
to trial after capture by the B's on the following charge: That the accused was commander
of the 47th Aggressor Tank Division during the period 21 March 2001 to 15 November
2001; that during July and August of 2001 members of the 47th Aggressor Tank Division
completely destroyed seven towns in B, killing all of the inhabitants therein as alleged
reprisals against certain acts of resistance. The accused states in his defense that he did
not order these attacks but that they were ordered by Colonel Donof of the 321st Tank
Regiment of that division. Although there are no orders presented at the trial to refute this
statement, the prosecution has presented records of the division showing that Boaz was
informed of each of these actions within several days of their occurrences. The defense
introduced one memo from the days prior to the sixth incident stating all regimental
commanders should employ moderation in combating the B resistance movement. Under
the evidence as given, Boaz should be convicted of the crime charged.
14. Assume the same facts in question 13. If General Boaz were in the United States
Army and being tried by the United States forces, he would probably be charged with the
commission of a war crime and be tried by a general court-martial.
15. A commander may be held criminally responsible for a criminal act of his
A. where he orders the offense.
B. regardless of whether he knew or should have known of the offense.
C. where, with knowledge of the offense, he takes all steps to investigate,
prosecute the offenders, and prevent similar occurrences.
D. in all of the above.
16. The duty of the soldier is to:
Obey all orders.
Obey orders without seeking clarification when orders are unclear.
Obey all lawful orders.
None of the above.
17. Sniper rifles are no longer lawful weapons in international armed conflict.
18. CID and JAG never get involved in investigating war crimes.
