Best Answer

Legally, to go to 'war' - the President generally asks to Congress to declare a state of war. It is assumed that Congress is a large enough body to determine what constitutes a justifiable war. Obviously, what is considered a justifiable use of military forces varies from person to person; no complete objective standard exists.

What does justified going to war mean?

It means there is a justifiable reason for going to war. Take for example World War 2. Hitler was killing millions of people and invading countries against their will. That deemed a reason to go against Hitler. He was wrong to do what he did and he had to be stopped. Another justifiable reason is when a people group or nation is under threat or attack. The United Nations deems it to be a justifiable reason for going to war against the foe. An example of that was when Iraq wanted to go into Kuwait to steal their oil and rule over them.
