The wording for reply (0) still seems to be the wrong way around.  "The means justify the end" doesn't seem to make any sense, whereas "The end justifies the means" does mean something, even though it is of course wrong.

I voted for 'for a reason not specified above', as I could not see any options which in themselves would stop me supporting a just war, even though the actions may be wrong (eg the draft).

I only consider war in defence as just. Again, this is due to the NIOF principle as well as economic reasoning. Wars are bad for the economy.

Personally, I supported the war in Afghanistan, but not Iraq. Saddam was a bastard and that cannot be argued, however he did not attack the US and he was not a sufficient danger to the US.

When the US intervenes in the middle east, it only creates more enemies. If people want to live in slavery to their god and country, than I shall not stop them unless they try and force me to do so.
