It depends on the situation. If someone is aiming a gun at me ready to shoot, I have a right to shoot him. So shooting that person justifies the means. I stay alive.
If I’m married to someone and he has an affair, divorcing him justifies the means. Or anyway, it does to me. Once a cheater, always a cheater. Divorcing the cheater justifies the means.
I don’t think most wars justify the means. A lot of innocent people end up dead. And most times, all the killing doesn’t end up justifying the means. All most wars do is fill up cemeteries with innocent victims. And those in power usually escape to another country where they live a life of ease. So most wars don’t justify the means.
So do the ends justify the means? It all depends on the situation, and what someone wants the outcome to be.
