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

"Yes, I believe every Christian has a responsibility (or God-given mission as you would call it) to resist evil . . . yes even fight against it, wherever it exists. Otherwise, you have no right to call yourself Christian."

When did you start thinking like this? Has it been a lifelong conviction, or was it born after 11 September? Where do you suggest we go next? Korea? Syria? Saudi Arabia? Lebanon? Practically the whole of Africa?

DA, it DOES NOT BECOME AN AMERICAN OR A BRITON to talk about fighting evil in other countries when we continue to slaughter millions of our own defenceless INNOCENT fellow-countrymen by the use of chemical weapons, strangulation, suffocation, and dismemberment. Their blood is on our hands. How can we DARE to talk about moral superiority?????????????
