The answer lies in the senselessness of your question. It would be like asking “if financial crimes can be punished, why isn’t all financial punished?”

Very few people have a good opinion about “war” but it’s not a crime in itself, at least not by any court of law. War has its rules though, so there are actions defined as “criminal”.
