It must also reach men who possess themselves of great power and make deliberate and concerted use of it to set in motion evils which leave no home in the world untouched."

"The Charter of this Tribunal evidences a faith that the law is not only to govern the conduct of little men, but that even rulers are, as Lord Chief Justice Coke put it to King James, 'under God and the law.'"

"And let me make clear that while this law is first applied against German aggressors, the law includes, and if it is to serve a useful purpose it must condemn aggression by any other nations, including those which sit here now in judgment."

From Opening Statement of The Chief Prosecutor, Supreme Justice Robert H. Jackson, at Nuremberg.

"The same disaster has now happened twice in forty years, in Viet Nam and Iraq. It must never happen again. As at Nuremberg, we need to take steps to insure that leaders will never do it again."

- Lawrence R. Velvel, Dean of the Massachusetts School of Law

Saturday - - 9:00 a.m. Opening Remarks

Brief introductory remarks stressing that crimes and misconduct have now occurred twice in forty years - - in Viet Nam and then again in Iraq - - and the high level perpetrators need to be punished (as occurred at Nuremberg and Tokyo in 1945 and 1946) in order to insure that people will not do these things again (as the Germans and Japanese have not committed their crimes again).
