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

From the Jerusalem Post today:
"U.S. forces have uncovered an illegal chemical-weapons plant in An Najaf, some 90 miles south of Baghdad, according to a report in the Jerusalem Post.
At least 30 Iraqi troops, including a general, surrendered today to troops with the 3rd Infantry Division within minutes of U.S. forces entering the area to capture the huge sheet metal-lined chemical weapons production facility.
One U.S. soldier was wounded when a booby-trapped explosive went off at the 100-acre complex, which is surrounded by a electrical fence." END OF EXCERPT
The Post goes on to state the surrounding barracks resemble an abandoned slum and the facility was camouflaged in sand-cast walls to make it look like the surrounding desert, in an apparent attempt to keep it from being photographed aerially.
So all you out there (and you know who you are) who claimed there was no evidence that Iraq had WMD or was still making them, here is but the first report of many more sure to come that refute all your willful denials.
Someday I hope you will be able to admit that this war was just and long overdue.
God bless our troops and our leaders. May we have swift victory followed by real peace for our nation, and the oppressed Iraqi citizens. May Saddam and his cabal be brought to justice.
