 JUDGEMENT SUMMARY
The Appeals Chamber finds that the actual infliction of terror is not an element of the crime of acts or threats of violence the primary purpose of which is to spread terror among the civilian population as charged under Count 1 of the Indictment.
In that respect, the Appeals Chamber notes that the Trial Chamber relied on a plethora of evidence to demonstrate that terrorisation of the civilian population was the primary purpose of the campaign of sniping and shelling and that Galić ordered the commission of the underlying acts with the same specific intent.
Trial Chambers have an overriding obligation to individualise a sentence to fit the circumstances of the accused and the gravity of the crime and, as noted by the Trial Chamber, the gravity of the offence is the primary factor to be taken into account in imposing a sentence.

Misalignment of the barrels and the chamber was the primary problem that caused jamming and inaccurate shooting (gatling gun civil).
Furthermore, the Crimean war was fought without the "advantages" of the post industrial revolution weaponry and recycled the war tactics from even earlier, as far back as Napoleon's conquests in the early 1800's.
Even with the limitations of the technological weaponry, these means of attacking were not overwhelming by any stretch of the imagination, but they weren't useless either.

The most long-lasting effect of this was the introduction of cannon and firearms to the battlefield, where they are still at the core of modern weaponry.
The most notable development in weaponry since World War II has been the combination and further development of two weapons first used in it—nuclear weapons and the ballistic missile, leading to its ultimate configuration: the ICBM.
However computer-guided weaponry of all kinds, from precision-guided munitions (or "smart bombs") to computer-aimed tank rounds, has greatly increased weaponry's accuracy.

 TrekWars - The Furry Conflict: Disruptors
Stun settings, when available, can sometimes be quite deadly, and the weapon itself falls far short of a phaser in terms of practical usages outside of pure weaponry.
There is, also, a much greater risk of "chamber fire," a misfire of the nadion pulse, resulting in an explosive vaporization of the weapon's chassis, power cell, and the user.
This is common aboard starships which mount disruptor cannons, but sustained-fire disruptors are also used, producing beams of a similar appearance to phaser banks.

This chamber was separated from the rest of the barrel by a strong lip, beyond which the powder could pass, but not the bullet.
In the earliest models, after the chamber was filled with gunpowder, Delvigne rammed a standard soft, round lead ball down the barrel and pounded it against the lip with the ramrod until it flattened just enough to grip the rifling grooves.
He replaced the lip and powder chamber inside the barrel with a hard metal post that screwed into the gun's breech.

But in terms of swallowing, regurgitating, amplifying the Bush administration propaganda, the big media -- the mainstream media were at their worst in a long time.
I mean, Bush and Blair start their propaganda campaign at Camp David -- officially, they sort of roll it out on September 7th, when they come out and say, "There's a new report from the International Atomic Energy Agency that shows that Saddam is six months away from building a nuclear weapon." Blair says it.

 International Humanitarian Law and the Tadic Case
Not surprisingly the Appeals Chamber held that this interpretation was unsustainable in view of the wording of Article 2 and the commentary in the Secretary-General's report.
The Appeals Chamber considered that the concept of grave breaches under the Conventions was inseparable from the concept of protected persons and property and that neither concept featured in common Article 3, the only provision in the Conventions applicable to internal armed conflicts.
The proposals being considered by the Review Conference of the United Nations Weaponry Convention to extend the mines protocol to internal armed conflicts and to make certain violations of that protocol grave breaches is a further indication of a trend, although one that may fail to achieve international acceptance.
