My Main Problem with the Just War Theory (a Theory that Was First Put Forth by the Theologians, Saints Aquinas and Augustine, Which Stated that for a War to Be "Just" it Had to Meet Certain Criteria; that it Must Be Waged by a Legitimate Authority/State, that All Other Means to Resolve the Crisis Have Been Exhausted, that There Must Be a Strong Likelihood for Success, that the Chance for Unintended Consequences Be Small, etc.)

The fact that it all too frequently results in just (as in only) war (the fact that you can drive a Mack Truck through the daggum thing and pretty much justify any war).
