    The text below is from the charter of the United Nations: WE THE PEOPLES OF THE UNITED NATIONS DETERMINED to save succeeding generations from the [destruction] of war, which twice in our lifetime has brought untold sorrow to mankind, and to reaffirm faith in fundamental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human person, in the equal rights of men and women and of nations large and small, and to establish conditions under which justice and respect for the obligations arising from treaties and other sources of international law can be maintained, and to promote social progress and better standards of life in larger freedom, AND FOR THESE ENDS to practice tolerance and live together in peace with one another as good neighbours, and to unite our strength to maintain international peace and security, and to ensure, by the acceptance of principles and the institution of methods, that armed force shall not be used, save in the common interest, and to employ international machinery for the promotion of the economic and social advancement of all peoples. Source: http://www.un.org/en/documents/charter/preamble.shtml Based on this excerpt, what was the member nations' stance on war and use of armed force? War declared on one member nation has no bearing on the other members. War is justified if the group's shared goals are being threatened. War for any purpose is unnecessary and inhumane. War places too much of a financial burden on nations and should be avoided. Question 8 (Multiple Choice Worth 2 points) (MC) In 1992, presidential candidate H.
