Six conditions must be satisfied for a war to be considered just: The war must be for a just cause. The war must be lawfully declared by a lawful authority (e.g.UN). The intention behind the war must be good e.g. peace. All other ways of resolving the problem should have been tried first. There must be a reasonable chance of success. The means used must be in proportion to the end that the war seeks to achieve. How should a Just War be fought?

A war that starts as a Just War may stop being a Just War if the means used to wage it are inappropriate. Innocent people and non-combatants should not be harmed. Only appropriate force should be used. This applies to both the sort of force, and how much force is used. Internationally agreed conventions regulating war must be obeyed. Put it to the Test......
