If you have watched the news recently, you might have seen Pakistanis threatening to ‘crush’ India, and Indians doing vice-versa. While overheated heads fume and release nothing but hot air, I want to dissertate whether there could be reasons for a just war. Jus ad bellum, the just war theory, which is embedded in international law, argues that there are sometimes justifications for a state to engage in a war. Unexceptionally, every single requirement has to be met with in order to justify a war.
