Honoring Those That Sacrificed on D-Day - For a Just Cause and a Just War

I am deeply thankful for those that sacrificed so that I can enjoy freedom and a relatively just society. In WWII, the "enemy" attacked preemptively, without provocation, and the enemy tortured prisoners. But, increasingly, the U.S. seems to be doing those very things that we had once fought against. Just war theory has apparently become ignored in favor of profits and political hegemony. The neocons of our day apparently do not have a very firm grasp of objective moral values. This is a problem that pervades society on many levels today.
There are logical reasons why moral relativism is false and why theism offers a cohesive explanation for objective moral values. A closer look at the subject of objective morality leads to the understanding that God's existence is necessary for the basis of such, as noted at this link.
