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

By saying so, you mean the God’s grace is only for the people who "understand" it.

By saying so, you mean that God only helps those who pray and do penance and reparation.

By saying so, you mean that "prayers, penance and raparation" is just BASIC, but NOT adequate.

By saying so, you mean that we cannot only reply on God’s grace, but must also rely on ourselves.

By saying so, you mean that God is NOT almighty, so we have to resort to man’s force.

The Virgin Mary never says that we have to war.

The pope says that "WAR is ALWAYS a defeat for humanity". But you say "war is a viable and noble and Christian solution". One of you (you and the pope), must be a heretic.

And don’t say that "holy peace loving people" have never felt oppression and suffering. My country had been ravaged by imperialists for nearly a century (guess which country?), but I fully know that war is NOT a solution.

Pope also knows that war is not a solution, but the terrorists think they have to war!
