Libya and the Moral Language of War

Contrary to the notion that U.S. military action must be predicated on American strategic interests, President Barack Obama has said that the United States’ only motive for intervening in the Libyan civil war was to protect civilians there. Stephen L. Carter, Yale Law School professor and author of The Violence of Peace: America’s Wars in the Age of Obama, argues that though Obama campaigned as the “peace” candidate, he believes that intervening in human rights conflicts is a legitimate use of military force.  Referencing St. Augustine’s “just war” theory, Carter suggests Obama may be on the right track, and argues the need for a public discussion about what constitutes the right and just use of power. View Carter’s full interview remarks in this 10-minute video archived on the website of Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly.  In addition, view a five-minute Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly news article on Carter’s perspective.
