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

Subject: Lack of Prayers

How do you know it is because of a lack of prayers. Evil is evil. Evil comes from humans making choices. Evil brakes God’s heart over and over again. That does not mean that people are not praying enough. Does that mean that a loved one with a fatal illness like cancer dies due to lack of prayers?! What about God’s most precious friends and allies--all the martyrs and saints over the past 2000 years who have died horrible tortured deaths prematurely at the hands of evil men who did not agree with them? Did they and their families and loved ones not pray enough? How could God let that happen to his beloved followers? I think that your answer may be a bit short sighted. This moment in history is but a small speck in the whole history of the world. Pray for the Iraqi’s and all the arab world-- those tortured--have faith that God will take care of us all if we follow him.
