I must retrace my steps, and must deprive those who wage war of nearly all the privileges which I seemed to grant, yet did not grant to them. For when I first set out to explain this part of the law of nations I bore witness that many things are said to be 
‘ 
lawful 
’ 
or 
‘ 
permissible 
’ 
for the reason that they are done withimpunity, in part also because coactive tribunals lend to them their authority; things which nevertheless, either deviate frothe rule of right (whether this has any basis in law strictly so called, or in the admonitions of other virtues), or at any rate may be omitted on higher grounds and with greater praise among good men.
Grotius:
De jure belli ac pacis 
Book III, Chapter X, Section I.1.
