The Cod Wars (also called the Iceland Cod Wars) were a series of confrontations between the United Kingdom and Iceland over Iceland's claims of authority over tracts of ocean off their coastline as being their exclusive fishery zone.
During this war, the Icelandic Coast Guard started to use the infamous net cutters, which proved so effective that they are often considered the key to the Icelandic victory.

 Interpreting
Hence, a reformulation of the COD, acknowledging the DDE and the POPLF, is warranted.
The DDE significantly narrows the scope of the COD's prohibition from the set of all innocent human beings to the subset of innocent human beings whose death is (1) intentional and (2) unintentional, foreseen, and disproportionate to the good that is being sought.
To deem every act of war immoral and to prohibit its occurrence, then, because of the possibility that non-liables may be killed accidentally, is like deeming immoral and prohibiting the building of automobiles because of the possibility of accidental auto injuries and deaths.

The book tells many interesting episodes in cod's history: the secret cod fishing grounds of the Basques, the cod wars of the Icelanders and the British, the White Fishing Fleet of the Portuguese, the exhaustion of the cod stocks by the Newfoundlanders, and many other historic facts in between.
