First, there has to be robust intelligence reports linking the target to intentions to commit heinous crimes. Culpability has to be built on solid ground, such as making of nuclear weapons, committing massacres and among other heinous crimes. Secondly, preemptive strikes should be the only option of stopping the target. This may be due to the fact that they are in a jurisdiction that cannot bring them to justice, or arresting them is simply impossible due to prevailing situation such as war (Kellner, 2015). It must be justifiable to use this tactic. Preemptive strikes should not be used to take out people whose only crime is to disagree with the state or some other power.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
