I would be interested to know from Prof. Martin how exactly suicide/homicide
bombers, whose very nature contravenes ***everything*** the "laws" of war are
supposed to constrain, would be considered "proportional", and also what exactly
would constitute a "proportional" retaliation to their intentional slaughter of
civilians? The slaughter of an equal number of civilians? Just curious.
