    One of the political problems for opponents (like me) is that there's a two-tiered argument that tends to get muddled.

    We contest the claim that the U.S. is an armed conflict in places like Yemen, which would mean that international human rights law, not international humanitarian law (or the law of armed conflict) applies, but we also say that even if the U.S. is in an armed conflict with Yemen, the U.S. is violating the law in various ways.

      I'd like to know more about the differences between those laws, but without having to read large volumes of information.  Do you have any recommendations for sources on that subject?
