Alternatively you could have really good intel and just capture and jail anyone who trys to make the next great killing machine. I *don't* buy into the mutually assured destruction idea, because it's incredibly unstable. All it takes is one crazy person one time to destroy the whole world. Especially if we keep letting weapons get more and more destructive.

Well that's all fine and good, but not everyone feels as you do. I am NOT willing to accept even a tiny probability of being one of the sacrificial lambs, and more importantly I'm not willing to accept that tiny probably for my children either. Monetary compensation is not a perfect solution, but what you typically see when someone is released after a long stretch of unjust imprisonment is that they are not bitter at all. But the bitterness of the family who has a family member unjustly executed is eternal. The two situations are not comparable at all.

If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.
