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

Dear Monique,

You can not be a Christian and support war. The message of Christ was quite clear - you only deceive yourself and others by your beleif that acts of violence are ok for christians.

And as for deception, your statements regarding the middle east are misleading as well. Their are no simple solutions to the situation - but a lot of hurt and bad feelings have been generated by Israel in their stealing & appropriation of land that has belonged to the natives of Palestine for thousands of years.

The USA should not be supporting Israel as long as this injustice continues - nor should this truth be hidden from public knowlege or distorted by the overreaction of those that support the existence of Israel - the truth is the truth - as soon as the USA becomes more sensitive to the varied cultures of this world, we will have have a more peacefull time of it!

WE do not know when the world will end (only God knows the time..) but hopefully we will soon reach an end to the stupid, blind, cruel, self serving leaders of this world and their very evil military establishments!
