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

Not so sure that your attitude breeds world peace. Foregiveness and some sort of solidarity/ common ground with leaders of these countries who initially did not back us would probably be more practical. And the true "victors" hopefully will be the entire Arab world who will see less suffering and less human rights problems! Time will tell whether or not the US involvement will have really prevented OUR citizens from terrorism, or INCREASED our danger. I am a supporter of this war but feel hesitant to brag about our success, rather thank God for minimum losses of life on both sides.
