(1) The absence of aggression between two parties despite having competing goals, interests or values or the non-interference in the internal affairs of the other party. (2) Sometimes, mutual non-aggression leads to a formal agreement (referred to as a “Pact”) between two parties to respect each the territory and interests of the other.
Used in everyday conversation:
Hitler and Stalin signed a Non-Aggression Pact, each pledging not to attack the other Country and also to divide portions of
Europebetween their two countries.
Much like the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany, Al Qaeda and Saddam Hussein, did not interfere in the in the internal affairs of the other party and were not engaged in open hostilities. This Mutual Non-Aggression proves that Al Qaeda and
were strategic allies and may have, in fact, been planning to divide up the world between the two parties. Iraq
Many believe that George Bush should not have relied upon Weapons of Mass Destruction as a "casus belli" (just cause) for the war in
Iraq, because the WMD could always be moved to and buried in the sand (which happened). Rather George Bush should have used the Mutual Non-Aggression between Saddam and Bin Laden as a casus belli for the War in Syria . Thus this Mutual Non-Aggression between Saddam and Bin Laden serves as a casus belli and justifies the invasion of Iraq as a War of Necessity. Iraq
