Abstract: This article demontrates that it is not longer possible to use the term 'just war' and that it need to be replaced by 'ethics of sustainable peace and conflict resolution'. The argument is mainly that the just war criteria are all too often either misused or incorrectly used (and the war on terror in Iraq is a splendid example of it). This is not a coincidence but a result of the complexity of the just war theory the criteria of which are often very ambivalent. The final argument is about the lack of a just post bellum.
