Ethical and religious perspectives on war and peace

Ethical and religious perspectives on war and peace. While most of the discussions have focused political perspectives of the current conflict, there are quite a few ethical and religious perspectives. A BBC website provides excellent overview of the positions including the various types of pacifism and just war. For more detail there is a nice index site on Anabaptist- Mennonite nonresistance, Leon Trotsky's Marxist critique of pacifism, a secular argument for pacifism, a Christian Primer on Just War, an atheist ethical perspective, and a buddhist perspective.

Just lay low, keep your head down, and the warlike ones will wipe themselves out....

And the meek shall inherit the earth.

Thanks for these links, KirkJobSluder, especially the one on the Buddhist perspective.
