Re: destruction of fossils
Of course, it remains to be seen how high that will be on the list of
priorities should any actual fighting occur, especially when adversaries
know that they're supposed to be safe within museums, etc. I'm skeptical
about such rules. Generally, I think it's pretty much impossible to
anticipate and counteract the kind of destruction that took place in
central Europe in WW2. Let's not do that again and we'll all be fine...

Subject: destruction of fossils
The fate of Ernst Stromer's finds suggests that some concerted action
be taken by paleotologists and countries to prevent destruction of the
fossils in wars that will be fought in the future. Given that at when
wars are foughts the current alliances and boundaries of the countries
be different, the fossils should get some redcross like status. On the
occassion of war they should be shifted to a neutral territory and such
transportation vehicles should not be attacked at any cost. There may be
very many variants on this but is there any unified resolution on this
matter on part of the professionals??
I would like to know if yes?
