Terrorism: killing civilians with the intent of changing their political affiliation.
Carr is a conservative military historian. He never once questions the need for war. He believes it is utterly inevitable. He completely fails to notice the success of the European Union at ending centuries of non-stop warfare within Europe. He completely swallows the Bush party line about what happened on 9/11, the Gulf War, the necessity of the war on terror, and the right of American to wage war on anyone it pleases, including pre-emptive wars on those it things might cause trouble in future. However, he makes a number of important points:
If a man is slain unjustly, his heirs shall be entitled to satisfaction, but let him not carry his vengeance to excess, or his victim is sure to be assisted and avenged.
If an unjust and rapacious conqueror subdues a nation and forces her to accept hard, ignominious and insupportable conditions, necessity obliges her to submit, but this apparent tranquility is not a peace, it is an oppression she endures only so long she lacks the means of shaking it off and against which men of spirit arise on the first favourable opportunity.
