    Dear Utagawa, Thank you for your reply. You mention Saudi Arabia and Egypt which are both nation states, not citizens. When I talk about the global citizenry, I mean the people not their governments. There is a difference. In both these states, the governments are supported in power by the US, so I am pleased to see your criticism of them, and therefore of the US as well. Thank you. As for China, it is a nation state which like the US believes that power is right. This is Machiavellian. It has nothing to do with idealism, in fact the opposite. It is about retaining power by any means ? clearly not democratic. As for suicide bombers, even under Hobbes, all contracts are off if you threaten someone?s life. Assymmetric warfare is the response of the oppressed to the murder of their people by governments ? in the cases you give as examples, the US and their proxies. I will remind you too of UN Resolution 2649, passed by the UN General Assembly which states to the effect that those under colonial or alien subjugation can use ?whatever means at their disposal? to free themselves. It could not be clearer, suicide bombing is legitimate. Regards
