Well im honestly not a good person to ask this question to cause technically im a "War Hawk" Which is a person who wants to go to war for anything. But honestly I think a country or group of people has a right to go to war if they are attacked or invaded of course. A example would be USA in WWII at Pearl Harbor, or more recently us attacking Afghanistan after 9/11. Togo to war just for more money or to gain more land I do not really think is a good reason. There has to be a good reason, so to sum it up. If hurt happens to a country, then that country has a right to strike back.

The top reason for war in my opinion: defense of the realm. Preventing agression by an outside state or country to your country.
Its often been said that "Violence never solved anything". Thats not true. Violence has resolved quite a few things in world history...maybe not to one parties satisfaction vs the other, but it does work.
If we should have to fight, we should be prepared to do so from the neck up instead of from the neck down. General James H. Doolittle, USAAF

Good reasons: An attack on your own or an ally's soil.
That's it. Any other reason is aggression.
Peacekeeping missions are a different horse. Those should be fought to stabilize a situation which could escalate in to war, but should ALWAYS be international in nature, to forestall accusations of undue aggression.
