Just War Theory Practice
Using the “Principles of a Just War”, identify the principle that best fits each scenario, and then explain why.
1. A small group of Russians swore to attack Finland, even though the Russian government ordered the Russians to withdraw.
2. World War II was an ugly war. Many times the Nazis would take their Allied prisoners of war and conduct inhumane experiments on them.
3. The One Hundred Years War between England and France actually lasted one hundred and thirteen years. Thousands died on both side with no clear victor at war’s end.
