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

Dear O,

Your baseless disdain notwithstanding, the facility has been classified as a training facility for chemical warfare after further investigation of the facility since the initial reports were found to be inaccurate. Furthermore, the existence of sarin nerve agent found in Iraq has been proven with the recent findings and exposure of some of our soldiers to it in facilities billed by the Iraqis as agriculture facilities - and which, may I add, were visited and "inspected" by the UN multiple times without these banned weapons ever being discovered. So much for the nonsense about how the "inspections are working, but need more time!"

The invasion is imminently justified. What is most certainly not justified is the cavalier attitude of the anti-American activists from groups like ANSWER who pay nothing but lip service to the suffering of the Iraqi people under Saddam while having the audacity to blame everything on the US.
