"The impartial answer is that all deliberate killing is murder or that none is.."

That "impartial answer" is not only not accepted in military circles, but also neither in civilian law. There is a huge spectrum. "murder" is *unlawful* deliberate killing, which for example deliberate killing in self-defence isn't.

"The 'invisible hand' (rich land owners with huge water rights in this case)..."

Sorry, you're misusing terminology. The "invisible hand" is the effect of the market - of people freely competing to efficiently allocate resources between alternative uses. When you instead refer to "owners with huge water rights", you're outside the market: "water rights" are a government largesse, not a market.

"One Architecture, One OS" also translates as "One Egg, One Basket".
