I was going to begin by listing a set of criteria for "just war."But checking several sources online I found several different definitions, and I don’t wish to choke discussion by holding anyone to a definition they can’t support when they might have been able to support a different one. Thus I’ll just ask some questions and let hte chips fall where they may:
- Is there such a thing as a just war in theory, even if not in practice?
- Are there any conflicts in recorded history, now concluded, which you would say qualify as a just war?
- Are there any conflicts currently being waged which you would call a just war?
Poll in a moment, but don’t let that slow you down.
