Casus Belli

Nobody asked but …

Can there be a human more debased than one who makes excuses for war?  By making such excuses one excuses every depravity–as these are part and parcel of war.  Think of any sin.  Does war do away with it?  Or does war make its commission more easy?  Think of any justification for war.  Does war make it more or less likely that another occurrence of a justification will arise.
