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

Dear Travis R,

You exagerate greatly the threat of Iraq to this country - they (the Sadam regime) have been truly a threat to their own people - murdering countless thousands, no doubt by some who do it in the name of God.

But they, like you, have no right to conduct violence in the name of God. How many wars have been fought over religion ? God is love, not hate.

Evil, and those that practice it, will never be defeated by force - study history - there will always be "villians".

Christ set the most perfect example in how to overcome evil by his life and death - dare you have the courage to follow ?
