Summary: “My focus will be on the justice of resorting to war in this case, or on matters of jus ad bellum, rather than the justice of the conduct of the war, or matters of jus in bello. Questions of the justice of conduct are of obvious importance in a moral assessment of any war, but space does not permit extending this discussion to those issues. And in any case, the question of the justice of resorting to war is the more fundamental one for it addresses not merely the means by which the war is prosecuted but whether it should be, or should have been, initiated at all.”—(p. 1).
