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

I’m sorry I didn’t copy the site the article came from, I thought the author would be sufficient. All media is biased one way or another.
I have not "forgotten what kind of man we are talking about." None of what I submitted said Saddam is a good guy. I agree he has "killed his own citizens on many occasions" - but you must realize most of these occasions he was killin with the full support of the US.
Sure, we could compare him to Hitler. But Hitler was attacking and conquering other countries. Saddam attacked his neighbor 12 or 13 years ago. This was bad, we intervened. Since then we’ve seen to it that his neighbors all all much more heavily armed than he is. In fact, they don’t see him as a threat.
I’m glad we can speak up for democracy... unless it’s the democracy of the UN.
