For a lot of the discussion the speakers seemed to be struggling to reach the principle 'There is no peace without justice', or 'If you want peace, work for justice'. This is a basic principle of Catholic Social Teaching to be found in the Catholic Catechism.

In that vein, it would be impossible to have peace in a society that had brutal slavery, like the US before the Civil War. In the same way peace is not possible in our country until we stop abortion.

I'm afraid that Rose and Janet Daniel-Whitney have it right. War is not so much illogical as a-logical.
