When a Christian Man Can Enter a War

This is from John Bytheway who quotes President David O. McKay in the April 1942 General Conference (the first conference after Pearl Harbor was attacked):
There are two conditions which may justify a truly Christian man to enter, mind you I say enter - not begin, a war: one, an attempt to dominate and to deprive another of his free agency. And two, loyalty to his country. Possibly there is a third. Defense of a weak nation being unjustly crushed by a strong, ruthless one.
