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

"God has chosen us to free the Iraqis from the shackles of a tyrant!!!!"

I am fervently hoping that this IS a joke. I remember the Yorkshire Ripper believed God had chosen him too. He was finally caught after murdering - if I remember correctly - his thirteen victim. One should be very careful about attributing one’s own motives to God. It smacks of extreme arrogance or derangement.
