Get the Geneva Convention mug.
A document listing the basic rights of humans, what not to do in a war, and the consequences of overstepping the bounderies of the contract. The most famous revision was made in 1949.

It has become a kind of bad punchline on the world stage, like that one smartass kid in school who got his ass handed to him by teacher(s) in front of everyone.
Diplomat: The Geneva Conventions are meant to protect the rights of all people during wartime so that no atrocities can be repeated as those in World War II.

Sensible Adults: So how's that going for you buddy? Because as far as I can see, that paper's done jack shit in recent conflicts.

A situation whereby rules are not observed by one party, so other parties feel free to ignore thier pledges to follow the rules. Actually happened with the real geneva convention.
Because we had some young kids playing they said 'no fucking' at the camp. John protested against this from the beggining and fucked everyone senseless. The other guys wanted pussy too, so the rules just became a genva convention.
