John Reid and the Geneva Conventions

Oh dear. Just when we were beginning to think that the Labour Party in the UK hadn't gone all NeoCon, John Reid decides to attack the Geneva Conventions as outdated and irrelevant.

While that may be true - sovereignty has long been a contentious issue, this is not a recent debate - the thrust of his argument is that, basically, it should be made easier for the strong to dominate the weak. This is naive and stupid. As I said, it may be that the GC's need reform, but surely not so that the West can annihilate the East? Dumb dumb dumb. Perhaps he's just figuring out that what he could get away with in the North he can't get away with Internationally.
