About "Give Peace a Chance"
This case argues that Just War Doctrine, the only widely accepted standard for evaluating the morality of warfare, denies the moral acceptability of preemptive war.
Pre-emptive war violates the principles of Just War because we can’t know that its cause is just, and because it always violates the principle that war should only be entered as a last resort. Violating these principles matters today because the world is a dangerous place. Lowering the bar and justifying easy entry to war is a really bad idea with nuclear armed paranoids like Kim Jong Un with their finger on the button who feel threatened 24/7 by everything and are itching to pre-empt.
