But morality or what is right and wrong are what makes something a law or not. Call it values, call it morals, call it the general consensus of what is good and what is bad but things that people(or in this case the international community)don't have a problem with(at least at some point in time) don't become crimes. So yes, it does have something to do with morality cause why else have war crimes statues in the first place if you don't think some acts? I mean certain war acts are seen as more morally reprehensible than others and overwhelmingly so. Laws exist for a reason.
You may think the act of dropping Atomic Bombs on Japan was morally wrong, but the fact it was not classed as a war crime by the existing laws, means there is no way you can truthfully call it a war crime.
