  1. I do not think that this is a just war as it doesn’t follow many of the just war criteria thus can not be seen as a just war. This means that the war should be put to an end in order to prevent further loss of innocent life. Alternatively they could hold peace talks in order to resolve the conflict.

  2. The main reason as to why this is not a just war is because they are killing civilians. Many people have been injured and killed due to the conflict. I believe no cause is valid if innocent people are being harmed. Plus the US’ actions have brought more harm than good.

  3. I believe that the war on Syria is not just war as it doesn’t follow the just war criteria. I think that the US should not be involved in it as many innocent people are being killed and the US does not have a valid reason to go to war with Syria as the Syrian government hasn’t attacked the US. I do not believe that war is the answer to this conflict. There are more peaceful ways of resolving it.

  4. in my opinion the is not just a war because the US does not have a reason to go to war because Syria has done nothing to make the US clobber in retaliation. Violence is not the war. Make love, Not war

  5. a war should only involve the combatants and not the civilians but many risks would need to be taken to reduce civilian casualties. such precautions would need to be taken but would it be possible to save every civilian? this is the challenge US militants would think about before creating conflict.

  6. The war on Syria was not a just war as it does not match the criteria. The US should think before getting involved as many innocent civilians are killed.The US does not have a valid reason to get involved. They should think of more peaceful ways to end the conflict.
