ABSTRACT. Orend claims that in just war theory there is a robust set of rules for resorting to war (jus ad bellum) and for conduct during war (jus in bello) but not for the termination phase of war. On Rigstad’s reading, JWT (Just War Theory) is the discursive practice of systematic public reflection and argument about how best to distinguish between ethically justifiable and unjustifiable warfare. Mooney says that waging war against overwhelming odds that will cause severe suffering to innocents is deemed to be practically unreasonable.
