Theoretically Justified War

I don’t imagine
we could ever have an environmentally healthy just war.

We need only look at torn and poisoned outcomes
from past ballistic international encounters
to see “healthy war”
as yet another oxymoron
capital city leaders fail to notice.

If no environmentally secure
and well-defended organic life justice results,
then no ecologically resilience-growing war.

If no ecologically positive war,
then no economically just war
as any short-term empowerment wins
are abundantly offset
by long-term losses
of trust
and well-being
and robust trade
transactions,
relationships,
communications.

If no economic just war,
justified violence,
justifiable aggression,
then no democratically healthy just war.

If no politically cooperative win/win just war
of co-empowerment,
then no socially just war,
justified violence,
justifiable aggression.

If no social
or political
or economic
or ecological just war,
then no theologically supported just war.

If no theological just war
then war is just inhumane madness,
lose/lose destruction,
absence of all that could be win/win sacred,
cooperatively owned
CoPresence.

Justice may “Just say No” to drugs,
but restorative
healing justice
definitely says No
to retributive injustice,
aggression
violence
retaliation
bullying
hatred
war.
