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

"When I read it aloud to my children, I could hardly get through it without getting choked up. Regardless of Samuel Clemens’ rocky relationship with his Creator, I truly believe that he was a prophet, speaking for God, when he wrote it."

Oh please! "Rocky relationship with his Creator"? From what I’ve read, he didn’t have one! His prayer was a satire, and as far as I’m concerned, it makes a mockery of all that our troops are doing in battle against Saddam Hussein and his evil totuturous regime.

So, give me a braek! It’s a shame your children are being influenced by this poppycock you call a prayer! "Appropriate"? Hardly!
