Actually there is. Naifon said so himself.

Wars of genuine defence, in response to invasion, are more justified than others. Let me present an interesting case of soldiers’ morale in two different scenarios taken from War & Peace (Война и Мир), by graf Lev Tolstoy. I will focus on 1805 and 1812.
In 1805, Russian soldiers are fighting to defend Austria/Germany from Napoléon’s Grande Armée. Their spirits may be high, but the soldiers lack resolve and conviction while fighting for an unknown (to them) geopolitical cause. Eventually the troops break rank at Austerlitz and are defeated.
In 1812, however, the soldiers are fighting to defend their Rodina (motherland). There, the purpose of the war is clear and existential. Despite overwhelming odds and near certainty of death, the troops fight off the French aggressor with unbelievable resolve, resulting in a good-order retreat from Borodino. Graf Tolstoy notes that the defence of the Rodina gives the troops a sense of moral superiority unlike any other and enables them to fight so aggressively.

It is my belief that wars of adventure (geopolitics, expansion, etc.) are far less justified and should be avoided. One of the most beloved states in Europe, the Swiss Confederation, has fought along such principles without succumbing to external enemies after 1815 (Congress of Vienna).

Naifon

Kindly explain yourself.

Personally, I respect their principled stance on Neutrality, and the fact they haven't wavered in upholding that principle.

Exactly. No foreign interventions/conflicts, except in defence. Granted, the Swiss Confederation has the advantage of terrain, since the Alps provide a natural fence. Still, I believe that if nation-states followed this principle, then many conflicts would be resolved.
My other point is that peace should not be conditioned on a nation-state’s internal affairs. So what if leader x is a bloodthirsty dictator. If he hasn’t invaded (crossed the border) into another sovereign state, let him do whatever he wants inside his nation.

It causes an outcry to intervene into the country the said leader is. Because the Declaration of the Human Rights is violated it acts as a casus beli to declare war. That plus it is easier to control/corrupt a parliament than a dictator who sometimes is a patriot
