概要 Contrary to Carl von Clausewitz, who called the principle of moderation applied to a theory of war a "logical absurdity," Thomas (a teacher of ethics and international relations at Johns Hopkins and H...ly Cross) maintains that "moral principles are fundamentally important to understanding norms governing the use of force, although they are seldom applied in their unadulterated form." Thomas examines norms' effects on the international community, the norm against assassination of leaders (in lieu of which armies are summoned to kill each other), and the norm against the aerial bombing of noncombatants. Thomas argues, for example, that the latter norm was violated when the U.S. bombed the Iraqi Al Firdos bunker, probably or hopefully unaware the attack was killing 200 civilians. The mistake resulted in a cessation of strikes on Baghdad for 5 days, none against leaders for ten days, and a review of all future targets by Schwarzkopf and Powell, even when, says Thomas, "it is doubtful that the action constituted a violation of international law." c.
