Referring to the article “Revolutionaries or Terrorists?”, identify as a team the standards the international community has established for when force may be used. In addition, review the standards the international community has used for how force may be used. List several examples of political violence, citing examples from either wars or terrorist acts. Explore these examples in terms of the decisions to use violence and how violence was employed (you will have to investigate the incidents on your list in order to craft informed responses to this part of the assignment). Are there examples of unjustifiable decisions to use force? Are there examples when the decision to use force was justifiable, but the kind of force was not?
Members of the group collaborate to post a response to this assignment.
