(4) the term “act of war” means any act occurring in the course of—
(A) declared war;
(B) armed conflict, whether or not war has been declared, between two or more nations; or
(C) armed conflict between military forces of any origin; and ..........
I couldn't find a comprehensive definition at the U.N., but there probably is one. Mostly the U.N. goes on and on about using the military.
For those who know - or remember in Marv's case:D - WWI was touched off when a Serbian civilian assassinated The Archduke of Austria. Probably, war would not have evolved if it had not been shown that the Serbian army had provided the weapon. Austria felt compelled to invade, Germany felt compelled to side with Austria, Russia felt threatened because Serbia was a critical path to free trade, France refused to declare neutrality, England would not allow France to fall, The Ottoman Empire felt compelled to back Serbia, and the whole world went to absolute hell as a result.:)
Moral: Gotta be a little careful who you shoot, but I think Iranian scientists are OK.

So, yes, killing their atomic scientists is an act of war, but the war started long before this.

The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

Besides, if we were the ones who'd done it, it would have been all over the media and the appeaser in chief would have already apologized and promised to assist them with their nuclear program. This is either Israel, the Saudis or the Russians.
