Investigates why Vietnam was so heavily sanctioned for its use of force against the murderous regime of Pol Pot. The reactions of other states reflected the domination of a pluralist conception of international society. However, I argue that Vietnam's use of force should have been legitimated on solidarist grounds as humanitarian.

Keywords:   Cambodia, humanitarianism, international society, legitimation, military intervention, pluralism, Pol Pot, solidarism, Vietnam
