justifiable targets to Group A plus adefined set of
the “most threatening” individuals from Group B?
nProblematic because the
threat from Group B will vary depending on brutality
of regime and alternative available means
Example : If U.S. government is informed that individual X is handing out leaflets calling for a revolution, X may
not be able to board an airplane as
easily and may have his/her phone tapped.
Thus the justifiable targets in the U.S. would be narrower
the North Korean government is informed that individual Y is doing the same thing, Y could be killed. So the
justifiable targetsA in North Korea would be broader
Group C = clearly illegal targets : Uninvolved civilians and innocent bystanders
Group A = legal targets : soldiers, paramilitary, etc.
B = Ambiguous targets: collaborators,
