Using just war theory would make our foreign policy so much better

“According to just war theory, wars may be undertaken only for just causes like the protection of innocent human life. War must be undertaken as a last resort. It must be waged by a legitimate public authority. There must be a reasonable probability of success. And war cannot unleash greater evils than inaction.”

What was the last truly justified war? Operation Desert Storm? Certainly WWII is, but after that?
