Is the U.S. military bound by the same environmental laws as the country being occupied? Let's say that the United States is still occupying Afghanistan, to what extent does the U.S. military have to abide by the environmental laws of the country. I am not talking about individuals committing a felony against an individual of the occupied people, but rather the military as an institution or as an occupying force. Example, let's say that the U.S. military in Afghanistan wants to burn down equipment and goods containing petrochemicals and other highly toxic compounds, can the U.S. military do so even if it's against the environmental regulations of the country of Afghanistan? If they can't do so, who enforces the environmental laws, the government of Afghanistan itself or an international organization?
