I've been pondering this question for a while now:

There are certain acts which I recognise clearly as unjust - war is the most obvious example of these. And I consider it unconditionally wrong to go to war; in my ideal world problems would be worked out, of course, nonviolently. Yet the present world is far from ideal, and there are obviously situations in which war is expedient. For example: when Europe was poised on the brink of the Second World War, Hitler was making aggressive, military, expansionist moves into neighboring countries, and Britain and France refused to take any action to confront or stop him. So would military action to confront this threat have been right on their part? Or would it have been just as unjustified as Hitler's original actions were?
