Iraq: Just War Revisited

  • Aired: 03/24/2006
  • 09:53
  • Rating: NR

Others, like President Bush, say it depends on practical national interest and whether the benefits outweigh the costs. Meanwhile, consciously or not, most of us probably weigh the morality of war using centuries-old just war theory.
