I learned that from Richard Dawkins. The use of strategic behavior validates the use of strategic behavior. I call it the Tragedy of the commons in regard to strategic behavior, or as will smith said, “Don’t want none, don’t start none.”
Just cause/ Right intention
According to the principle of right intention, the aim of war must not be to pursue narrowly defined national interests, but rather to re-establish a just peace. This state of peace should be preferable to the conditions that would have prevailed had the war not occurred.
The principle of proportionality stipulates that the violence used in the war must be proportional to the attack suffered. For example, if one nation invades and seizes the land of another nation, this second nation has just cause for a counterattack in order to retrieve its land. However, if this second nation invades the first, reclaims its territory, and then also annexes the first nation, such military action is disproportional.
