Since the Alzheimer's thread was somewhat derailed by the topic of a just war, I thought it should have its own thread. So, is there such a thing as a just war? If so, who determines it and what standard is used? If Christians fight in a war because they believe it is just, or because they believe they should fight for whatever reason, why are they wrong just because others think it is unjust? The only valid argument I can see against war is pacificsm. It is the only consistent position if one opposes war, imo. The determination of whether a war is just or unjust is too ambiguous.
