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

Subject: Just?

Remember, Jesus never, ever said any type of violence is just. He never told his disciples to rise up against the Romans. He said on the contrary, to love your enemies. If we think any type of violence is just, even if it is to protect ones self, then we are not truly believing in the teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ.
