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

You say "If you insist on using violence to fight violence, you are just as guilty as the guy you are trying to whack."

Didn’t Jesus become a bit violent when he confronted the moneychangers in the temple? Seems to me he got a bit angry about what was going on in there. He didn’t "turn the other cheek." So, according to your logic, Jesus was just as guilty as the moneychangers! Kind of like us going to war in Iraq to root out the evildoer, Saddam Hussein, wouldn’t you say?

IF GOD IS WITH US, WHO CAN BE AGAINST?
