Can a Just War be Just if You Won't Fight?

Religious philosophers will have to update the Just War Doctrine to take into account the Yellow Elephants who vocally support U.S. military intervention in Iraq, provided that other people do the actual fighting.

Accepting at face value President Bush's determination that we had to go to war against Iraq to protect our essential national interests, doesn't that make the Young Republicans essentially traitors, even worse than Jane Fonda? [At least she actually went to Vietnam.]

Won't and can't are different.

You are using a broad brush to paint all parts of a certain group, tsk tsk tsk.

I guess all the people who did NOT fight in WWII thought Hitler and the Japanese were correct, according to you all people who did not serve that were of age either were cowards or thought the war was unjust.

Don't worry, there of people like me (and all those currently in the armed service, past and present, service) that will pick up the slack for others to make the world a safer place.

By the way, I suggest you not tell the millions that died in the death camps of WWII that all those that did not fight that it was 'just' for them to die

Hopelessly lame argument started in this thread.
