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

"Never did he amass an army for the purpose of fighting wars" . . . so you say.

Have you ever heard of heaven’s army of angels? Have you ever heard of "St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle"? We are talking about spriritual warfare and much of that is manifesting itself in today’s world and the likes of the battle that rages in Iraq. Good vs. evil. Saddam Hussein’s regime is evil, pure and simple.

Without a doubt, God has blessed America. (He establishes nations. Sacred scripture teaches us that.) Along with those blessings comes awesome responsibilites to help those less fortunate and to share those blessings. One of those blessings is freedom. We are helping Iraq gain its freedom from a very evil tyrant. Yes, God is blessing the people of Iraq as we speak with what is rightfully theirs . . . freedom. As our president has said, "Freedom is not America’s gift to the world. It is God’s gift to humanity."

Newbie, do you enjoy freedom? If so, why do you not want the people of Iraq to have it, too? Without this JUST WAR of liberation the suffering people of Iraq would still be subject to the terrorism of Saddam Hussein.
