Watch “WWII: America a History of Us” posted in this folder, watch
Podcasts 3 & 6 posted in this folder, and read Ch. 22 of “Give Me
Liberty” before considering the question. Be sure to cite specific
evidence from the textbook and videos and also consider comments of your
peers in your reply.

Many have called WWII “the last good war” and debated whether the
U.S.’s entry into the conflict met the requirements of Just War Theory
(for more information on just war theory, please see: plato.stanford.edu/entries/war/#2). For a war to be considered just it has to meet the following criteria:

1. Just cause: a nation must enter war in self-defense or for other reasons that uphold justice.

2. Right intention: the outcome of the war must ensure that justice
is attained and there can be no ulterior motives like racial or ethnic
hatred and/or land grabbing.

3. Proper authority & public declaration: the war must be decided
upon and declared by the proper authorities in the state in accordance
with the nation’s laws. The declaration also must be made public against
the opposing nation.

4.Last Resort: a nation must first exhaust all diplomatic and peaceful means by which the conflict can possibly be resolved.

5. Probability of Success: war should only be initiated if it has a
good likelihood of success since it causes harm and destruction.

6. Proportionality: the universal good that a state can potentially
gain from war must outweigh the universal evil incurred by all of war’s
participants, especially loss of human life.

In your original post, answer the following questions: Judging from
this theory, do you think that the U.S.’s decision to enter the war AND
its involvement in WWII both abroad and at home conform with Just War
Theory? Why or why not? Were there any actions that fell short of these
standards?

For your reply, read your classmates’ original posts and make sure
that they have thoroughly considered both the US’s entry into and
involvement in WWII. How did the US interact with European powers who
were at war? What about US interactions with Japan? How did US military
campaigns conform with Just War Theory? What about domestic policy
decisions?
