Abstract

In this article, the just war themes of ‘supreme emergency’ and ‘emergency ethics’ are investigated as a means of justifying extra-territorial wars. The rhetoric justifying it uses an idealised sense of the home that is reinforced by the practices of soldiers. Furthermore, the importance of values in the ‘emergency ethics’ logic is investigated by exploring the memoirs of a British Army chaplain serving in the Korean War. The contemporary relevance of the article lies in the extra-territorial nature of the War on Terror and the persistent use of reference to values to justify immoral and illegal acts of war
