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

Dear Shoshana

Surely Gwynne is forgetting the vast store of WMD that Saddam has hidden "somewhere in Iraq"!

I’ve been trying to get one of our friends on the other side of the argument to answer a simple question, but so far I’ve failed. My question is usually ignored, and it is this: how is this war going to stop terrorism? That’s what it’s supposed to be about, so how is it going to work? How COULD it work?

Ooohhhh. I’ve gone beyond anger and frustration, and almost reached resignation. What I have feared all my life is now coming to pass.

Thank you for "being there". (I’m going to get "The People of the Lie", by the way - it sounds good. Have you read "Windswept House" by Malachi Martin? Something tells me you have.

Take care, and God bless
