    It is naive on the part of many to believe that countries and governments act according to utopian standards, even if they have adopted by the UN and its agencies.. Preservation of the concept of the nation-states as they exist today is a cardinal principle which is rarely breached. When dealing with the modern phenomenon of transnational and global terrorism, which are threat to the world order that exists today,methods that outmatch those of the worst of the terrorists are adopted by states in concert. Nation-states are co-operating on an unprecedented scale , even bordering on the illegal and unconcienable, to tackle phenomenon that are equally illegal and unconcienable. Exceptions are the norm.
    No country can claim to be Lily-white.

    The American Secretary of State has emphasised this concept in very clear terms, soon after his swearing-in.

    Unfortunately, such strong arm and extra-legal tactics are deployed by many countries on the fringes of democratic governance as tools of governance. The example set by the bigger and powerful democratic countries becomes the fig leaf to justify their malfeasance for the countries on a dictatorial trajectory. The obvious distinctions are deliberately blurred as a result.
