There is almost nothing for which I would go to war. I would certainly have been a conscientious objector in the First World War, and just about every other war in history. With great reluctance, I think I would have fought in the Second World War. The Nazis overstepped a line such that reasonable people could regard the global catastrophe of world war as the lesser evil. Is militant Islam heading towards the same watershed? I fervently hope not.
