How about a war with one's self. Is that just?

Are you saying we shouldn't have fought the Nazis and the Japanese in World War II? Are you saying we shouldn't have fought the Revolutionary War? Are you saying Lincoln should have let the South secede?

You are wrong.

No, everyone is affected and even after there is struggle.

few things in life are absolutes........so I assume the answer must be yes.....I cannot imagine any person whose country/neighborhood/house wasn't being over-run who wouldn't feel the right and need to fight back, but I don't know.......

I also must say that going back to WW2, there was some good that came out the UK, US, USSR fighting back against the Axis..........

the question would be better "Is it ever just to start an unprovoked war?"

A defensive war is ALWAYS just by definition.
