ABSTRACT. Boyle remarks that the authority to organise and command defense is not the stronger authority to punish (which involves imposing further burdens on those against whom defense is mounted than defense itself implies). Rodin argues that states are constituted by their existence as sovereign entities (they have the claim-right against other states not to destroy their political independence or interfere in their territorial integrity). Lizardo writes that the apparent inability to “comprehend” terrorist actions is tied to the fact that both terrorist organizations as actors and the output of those organizations as actions and events are not considered legitimate forms of intercourse in the international arena.
