Avast decided it didn't like it too now. Are you sure the site's OK?

There was an article on the BBC website in which one paragraph caught my attention, "In war, soldiers are immune from prosecution for murder. But the UK is not at war with the IS network - so the same immunity is not automatically available for counter-terrorism purposes."

I looked a bit deeper and found that the UK hasn't declared war on anybody since WWII, despite having been involved in conflicts like The Falklands and Iraq.  So my question is, if we've not been at war, what have we been at and what's the difference?

I think it’s a series of criteria you meet under the body of law known as international humanitarian law rather than declaring war in itself.

Under which you still can be prosecuted for the killing of non combatants and combatants who surrender etc.

But often very tricky to determine when these rules apply, particularly in non -international armed conflicts (civil wars) where for example governments will launch air strikes on their own citizens or send tanks in to quash armed groups but flatly deny there’s a war in their country.

I believe don’t believe that the US has declared war on anyone since the end of ww2 either.
