Press: The morality of war - WorldNetDaily.

"In the 5th century A.D., the great St. Augustine changed that, setting forth a more realistic philosophy of war, which remains today the foundation of all Christian teaching on the subject. As outlined in a recent online article by Professor Mark Edward DeForrest of Gonzaga University, Augustine actually gave his blessing to war. According to natural law, he taught, war was a permissible part of the life of a nation. And the power of prosecuting a war was part of the natural powers of a nation's leader, whose job it was to protect the peace."
