Re: Oh yeah

IANAL, however in civil court you don't have to 'prove' something to the same standard as criminal courts .... All they would have to show is "on the balance of probabilities"

There's also scope for lots of legal argument about what constitutes an act of war in terms of what befalls an innocent bystander.
