In the 55 years following WWII, some wars took place. We have left the 20th century behind but regrettably the same cannot be said for war.
Submit All wars are justifiable, few are justified. Any war can be justifiable. Justifiable no man would ever take the risks that war encumbers without reason. The real question is whether or not the given reason is moral.
What, therefore, would make a war moral, or immoral? Are morals absolute, or are they up to individuals? Should morals be based on feelings, religion, or other reasons? Do ends justify means? These are the true questions that must be answered before the question of justified war can be answered, and unfortunately each point is complicated and has been individually debated for as long as human history.
I will therefor give my own opinion without reasoning, as the reasoning itself would take several drawn out conversations, or books to even begin to express.
Yes, there are absolute morals. Finally, no, the ends never justify the means.
Based on these presumptions I believe that war can, and should always be fought if other criteria are met. First it should be in the protection of others this may include your own citizensnever for personal gain or interest.
Second, these others must want your help. Third, without compromising the first two conditions, you must do everything in your power to resolve a conflict peacefully. All three conditions must be met for a war to be justified, but if even one is not met, the war can never be justified.
If there are any arguments or problems with the assertions I have made please do reply debate is a great and glorious thing if used with the desire to find truth.
It should be noted that my unwillingness to explain my beliefs in further detail a major cop out, and one that I hope to address in some way. Mabey I will write several books if I must, but just be aware that I do have very sound reasoning, and careful consideration that has led to my beliefs as they are.Just war theory (Latin: jus bellum iustum) (proposing that there has never been and/or can never be a justifiable basis for war) or toward a more permissive nationalist standard (–), who justified war by the Kingdom of Poland with Teutonic Knights.
War Is Never Justified War is never justified, this is a very diverse topic seeing as there can be so many opinions about it. I feel that war is never justified regardless of its purpose. War cannot be justified because it has terrible short term and long term effects for the world.
It also cannot be properly justified because wars are fought for misguided and greed driven motives.
Finally, it cannot be justified because war is driven by the very evil present in human beings. To see why, consider the six criteria just war theorists, including Biggar, use to determine when a war is morally justified. The war must be undertaken with the intention of establishing a just.
Hence, in my opinion, war is never justified.
Back in the s A.D, Muslims were engaged in a series of war against the Quraish. These wars can simply be titled as the most systematic wars in.
I feel that war is not about victory or defeat. It is about the total failure of a human spirit. Wars can't be justified, people can fight over religion, power, land, oil or freedom but really most people want more than they need and are greedy.
