Okay, this is tangential, but. . . what?

No, they did not commit a war crime. They ordered a nuclear strike, under circumstances where it would be entirely reasonable to launch a nuclear strike, and with ( implicitly ) proper authority allowing them to do so.

What about their actions would even slightly constitute a war crime ( as opposed to just questionable judgement, which they certainly were guilty of )?
