The Right of Conquest, which some view as the oldest and most salient form of land acquisition, is nothing but a smokescreen to hide blatant thievery.
“You shall not steal.” Exodus 20:15
Therefore, it is not only an egregious position, but a sin as well.
“The Draft Declaration on Rights and Duties of States, formulated in 1949 by the International Law Commission of the UN, contained (in Article XI) the rule that states are obligated not to recognize territorial acquisitions achieved by aggressive war,” explains Encyclopaedia Britannica.
There’s only one country in this modern era of Human Rights and International Laws that uses the Right of Conquest argument to cover its theft: Zionist Israel.
Its land thieves use the word “settlers” to con the world into thinking that Palestine was never inhabited, when in fact there was a sizable Arab population before converted European Jews disembarked there. See Palestine before the Zionists stole it.
Using the Conquest argument, it’s okay then for China today to invade the US in order to acquire more land and expand its Empire, since the right of conquest is the most salient form of land acquisition. And then when Chinese “settlers” begin to take over the homes of Americans (like Israelis did of Palestinians and are still doing), no one should utter a word.
Right of Conquest is the argument of THIEVES!
