As comic Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal explains, this is what happens when a powerful weapon falls into the wrong hands. Or when someone in power is just plain dumb.

shouldn’t it be if we (if by we, we mean the U.S) make war on a sufficiently small enemy then it is a victimless crime, but if a sufficiently small enemy makes war on us it isn’t?
Ah, you see bryan the US is “we the people”. So no matter how small the enemy is, if they attack us they attack the single corpus that is “we the people”. So that means it’s always a crime if “we” are the victim.
Can more than one person kill a single person? Sure, there’s shared culpability. But at some point, someone is the last person in the chain who deals the fatal blow, that last kick in the ribs, even if you’re simply driving the drone with a joystick. There seems to be a distinction, at least in language, between facilitating murder and dealing it. Even facing a firing squad, I’m guessing there’s a fatal bullet, even if you don’t know whose.

There are rules—usually for specific chart types meant to be read in a specific way—that you shouldn’t break. When they are, everyone loses. This is that small handful.
