Is It Acceptable to Violate Neutrality - Ever?

At the beginning of WWI, Belgium once-again declared its neutrality. German soldiers, however, needed to go through Belgium to reach France.

Kaiser Wilhelm, then Germany’s leader, said that Belgium’s “neutrality had to be violated by Germany on strategical grounds.”

What do you make of the Kaiser’s argument?

If a country declares that it is neutral, effectively stating that it will not take sides in a coming war or conflict, is it ever acceptable for a warring country to violate that neutrality? Explain your answer.
