    Default no matter

    Dear teachers.

    I don't understand the meaning of (1) and (2).

    1, No matter what you believe
    2, nothing but nothing

    No matter what you believe, nothing but nothing justifies suicide bombings.

    1. It does not matter what you believe - religion, politics ...
    2. Absolutely nothing

    It does not matter from which angle you are viewing it - suicide bombings are not an option.

    nothing => it is never justified
    nothing but X => only X justifies it
    nothing but nothing => there's no exception whatsoever
