Legitimation, particularly by the UN, is a necessary but not sufficient condition for using force among Western states.

Rather, the situation appears very unclear regarding the rules for using force. With the advent of global strategic terrorism, the need for regime change is no longer solely motivated by humanitarian ‘value’ concerns, but also and probably foremost by security policy concerns.

Throughout the cold war, force was needed to deter the other side from doing bad things outside its borders; today, force is needed to compel the other side to do good things inside its borders’, an analyst aptly summarises it (Prince in Hyde-Price, 2004, p. 338).

A Frenchman is no longer required because he defends the French nation or French territory; as it was in the period of the Napoleonic or nation-state paradigm. Today, one could think of a French-force contribution being made up of say, 50 per cent French and 50 per cent from other nationalities, but still fighting under the French standard. My point is the simple one that nationality matters less and less in a professional force. Like soccer teams that are national in name and banner, they are now made up of professionals.
