Does the military action the U.S. is contemplating against Iraq meet the standards of a just war?

Subject: what was the defense of Jesus

Please show me which of the sayings of Jesus Christ would justify your position on defense.

Also, please show me an example of how Christ lived his life that would justify your position on defense.

As far as freedom to practice religion, are you talking about the internal freedom that a person has, no matter what his external circumstances may be, to commune with God - or are you refering to this countries alleged external freedom to have abortions, pornography, and all kinds of moral and irresponsible conduct in the name of freedom.

As far as "others" giving me the right to practice my religion - it is God that has given me that privlidge and it is only God that can take it away!
