Last quote by Kevin Jon Heller
The problem is that self-defense must always be proportionate to the armed attack, and Trump clearly threatened disproportionate force. Had he said a nuclear attack would require wiping North Korea off the face of the earth, that might have been a lawful threat. But he did not qualify the threat in any way; on the contrary, he suggested North Korea would have to be destroyed in response to any armed attack on the U.S. or its allies. That is an unlawful threat that violates Art. 2(4).feedback
