In this brief response to Professor Guiora's article, the author questions the lawfulness of pre-emptive self-defence in the context of international terrorism. He further argues that Article 51 as it is currently interpreted and the relevant rules on State responsibility provide an adequate legal protection to States. The response also addresses the question of judicial review by national courts over the executive's decision to resort to military force. © Oxford University Press 2008; all rights reserved.
