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

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace:
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is discord, harmony;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is error, truth;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
Where there is sadness, joy.

Under the regime of Saddam Hussein, the Iraqi people have been living in: darkness and despair, discord and doubt, terrible injury at the hands of Saddam Hussein, and great sadness because of the atrocities he has committed against his own people.

America and the coalition forces are the instruments in God’s hands, bringing renewed hope, harmony, light, joy, and freedom and PEACE to an oppressed people.

And this is not LOVE OF NEIGHBOR AND JUSTICE?!
